Pre-Law Resource Center

Guidance and Mentoring

The Cougar Advantage

At WSU, students can choose a program of study that allows them to develop and strengthen the skills needed to succeed not only in law school, but as a legal professional.

Pre-law is not a degree. Students enter law school from virtually every academic discipline. No specific major or set of courses is required for law school admission.

The PLRC helps students navigate through and prepare for the law school application and admission process by providing the personalized support each individual student needs to become an exceptional law school candidate. Schedule an appointment to meet with the PLRC Director to make sure you’re on the right track.

PLRC mentors help students make the most of their undergraduate education and provide guidance to successfully gain admission to law school.

Students are encouraged to seek assistance early in their academic careers to develop an academic plan for a successful future.

Your academic advisor will assist you with course planning and scheduling, but the PLRC can assist students with other aspects of establishing a competitive application for law school through peer connections and unique opportunities.



The Pre-Law Resource Center student mentors are available to answer drop-in questions anytime during office hours. Student mentors are juniors or seniors students with significant knowledge of the law school application process. Stop in with your questions today.
