Temple offers undergraduates a wide range of courses, programs of study, and majors that will contribute to their preparation for law school and for a career in the legal or a related profession. Beginning with special sections of the First-Year Seminar designed specifically for the pre-law student, Temple undergraduates will find numerous opportunities to sharpen their critical thinking, reading and writing skills both in and out of the classroom. Interested students can participate in the Mock Trial Team, get involved in the pre-law organizations (Phi Alpha Delta and the Pre-Law Society), or undertake an internship in the Philadelphia area. Speakers on legal issues, on careers in law, and on preparing for the LSAT provide additional opportunities for the Temple student to learn more about the study of law and prepare for the intellectual challenges ahead.
Both the College of Liberal Arts and the Fox School of Business provide programs and advising support for Temple pre-law students.
Entering first-year students can apply for the Temple Law Scholars Program, an early assurance program offered by Temple University’s Beasley School of Law.
