Academic Opportunities

Preparation for Careers in Law

Because a student with a strong record in any field of study can compete successfully for admission to law school, there is no prescribed program of “pre-law” courses. Students considering a career in law may explore that interest at Bryn Mawr in a variety of ways—e.g., by increasing their familiarity with U.S. history and its political process, participating in Bryn Mawr’s well-established student self-government process, “shadowing” alumnae/i lawyers through the Career and Professional Development’s externship program, attending LILAC and CPD law career panels and refining their knowledge about law-school programs in the Pre-Law Club. Students seeking guidance at any point in their career about the law-school application and admission process should consult with the College’s pre-law advisor, Jennifer Beale, at Career and Professional Development. Please email her at jbeale@brynmawr.edu to be added to the prelaw listserv.
