Pre-Law Advising

Students interested in attending law school after completion of their undergraduate degree at Butler are encouraged to find a major of greatest interest to them. Law schools recruit from every discipline, so students are not confined to a specific course of study. The Butler core curriculum will provide students with significant exposure to written and oral communication skills and the ability to think critically. Additionally, a number of upper-level courses dealing with law-related subject matter are available. A complete listing of these courses can be found on this site. The Pre-Law Advisor works with individual students to assist them with the law school admission process.

We are pleased to announce the Butler Law Scholar award, in partnership with the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law.
