Legal Studies/Pre-Law

Legal Studies/Pre-Law

Law, or legal studies, comes into contact with almost every area of human life, touching upon issues relating to business, economics, politics, the environment, human rights, international relations and trade. Legal Studies and Pre-Law courses are designed to introduce you to concepts and ideas within Law and a framework through which to examine and understand different societies and cultures. These degrees are a useful way to decide on whether training as a lawyer is right for you as well as help you prepare for a broad range of professional roles – and indeed, for life in general.

Good to Know

pre-Law degrees or pathways, are most common in the USA and Canada where Qualifying Law is a graduate school degree (after your undergraduate degree) This is occasionally a set degree, but more often a support pathway to help prepare you for graduate law applications.
