The work of successful lawyers is increasingly associated with the rendering of opinions and counsel on business matters such as banking, insurance, real estate titles, business contracts, etc. Corporations employ many lawyers full time for their contract and other legal work, and the young lawyer who has a degree in business will be at a distinct advantage in obtaining and doing such work.

Each law school determines its own requirements, such as admission criteria, number and type of semester hours required for entrance, etc. Students planning to enter a law school should be in communication with that school shortly after entering college to insure the program they take will meet all requirements of the law school the student plans to attend. For more detailed information the student should read the Pre-Law Program section of this catalog.
