Pre-Law at Emory & Henry
The Department of Politics, Law, & International Relations houses the college’s Pre-Law program. The department has a close relationship with alums who have gone on to law school and now work as district attorneys, lawyers in private practice, and other areas. Given these connections, our students have many opportunities to intern in law offices.
Make an appointment with Dr. Anne Shumaker to learn more about the program.
The Department of Politics offers two tracks, a standard BA in Politics and a BA in Law & Politics. Focusing on law provides students with an integrative approach to the study of law as a part of liberal education and introduces fundamental notions of the nature of law, its history and development, and principles which underlie its administration. The BA in Politics & Law is designed to prepare students for law school and the practice of law.
