Lady Justice

Lady Justice equipped with three symbols: a sword symbolizing the court's coercive power; a human scale weighing competing claims in each hand; and a blindfold indicating impartiality.

    About this Guide

    Welcome to the WMU Libraries' subject guide for Pre-Law Career Information.  Use the tabs at the top of the page to help navigate through this guide.

    The following books and links provide information on preparing students for law school. However, you should not rely exclusively on this site to advise you on the application/preparation process. You should speak to a pre-law advisor in your college to get more extensive information on the application process.

    Students in the College of Arts and Sciences can visit 2047 Moore Hall (temporary office) or call (269) 387-4366; students in the Haworth College of Business can visit 2130 Schneider Hall or call (269) 387-5075.

    The WMU Political Science Department has created a Pre-Law Web page designed to help students with initial advising and access to resources. Please read carefully before consulting an adviser. The site has information about the application and admission process, suggested majors and courses, financial aid, a preparation checklist, and suggested readings.

    The WMU Pre-Law Society is a student-operated association that promotes the study of the law. It meets twice a month and schedules speakers, including attorneys and judges, that pre-law students find useful. The group administers a practice LSAT examination every winter semester and brings in representatives from LSAT preparation centers. 

    NOTE: The inclusion of links in this guide which offer fee-based services does not constitute an endorsement.
