Transfer Guide

Most law schools (including UO) require a bachelor’s degree as prerequisite for admission. They are not concerned about the applicant’s major, but wish to see evidence of intellectual maturation. Therefore, most require that no more than ten percent of the applicant’s pre-legal education consist of “activity” courses of a “non-theoretical” nature. Keen analytical capabilities and well-developed writing skills are emphasized.

Courses such as PS 201 and 202 relating to U.S. Government institutions, including courts and the law, can help the student to comprehend the role of law in American society and can provide the student with an opportunity to analyze real-life court decisions.

In selecting a pre-law major, students should consider the area to be selected for law practice: government, business and corporate, sciences, criminal justice, publishing, domestic relations, etc. Admission to law schools is based on academic achievement, employment experience, extra-curricular activities, and performance on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).

Students should follow the transfer curriculum for the field of study and college or university in which they plan to complete the baccalaureate degree. After transfer, consult with the institution’s pre-law adviser to plan upper division coursework.
