Degrees & Requirements

Emory & Henry has a long and distinguished tradition of pre-legal education

Students interested in Pre-Law should make an appointment with Dr. Anne Shumaker to learn more about the program and advisement. 

Since law schools do not require or even recommend a specific pre-law course of study, the college encourages pre-law students to develop programs of study which emphasize the areas of knowledge needed for good performance on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and for subsequent good performance in law school and as attorneys.

Based on surveys of law schools and lawyers, the significant skills and areas of knowledge are written and oral communication, including composition, speech, and debate; logic and reasoning; economics and general computation; and knowledge of history, government, and political affairs.
