About the Pre-Law Resource Center

The Pre-Law Resource Center (PLRC) welcomes all WSU students interested in learning more about law school admissions, law school itself, and the legal professions. Students enter law school from virtually every academic discipline — no specific major or set of courses is required for law school admission.

Our goal is to give students the resources needed to become exceptional law school candidates. As a student resource center, study space and access to current and past official LSAT preparation materials are available to students during center hours.
