SVSU students at a law school forum in Chicago.
SVSU offers an array of opportunities and resources for students who are considering attending law school. As a teaching university focused on the "human scale," it does so in a personal way that connects students to faculty, clubs and organizations, internships, and prelaw advising. In addition to the many law-related courses available to students, experiential learning opportunities round-out the prelaw program and include Moot Court, the Law Club, internships, a regional mentoring program, and an annual trip for selected students to attend the Law School Forum in Chicago.
Law schools do not specify a particular major which students must complete as undergraduates.
To prepare for law school, students should take courses that develop skills in writing, public speaking, logical reasoning, analytical reasoning, historical research, and accounting principles.
Most important is the quality of your academic work and the academic and intellectual skills you develop in your course of study.
