The Certificate in Pre-Law Program is designed to provide undergraduate students with skills that are required for law school and the practice of law: analytical reasoning, reading, and writing. It is also intended to provide a background on various perspectives on law from a variety of disciplines not often associated with legal studies, such as sociology, psychology, and history.
A student who chooses to pursue a Certificate in Pre-Law may choose any major or minor in any college at UAH. A choice of major and minor is best made in consultation with the Pre-Law Adviser, who can guide a student in choosing courses that will prepare him or her for the academic rigors of a legal education. For many students, the Certificate can be earned without adding additional hours to a degree program. Select courses can be counted toward Charger Foundations.
