Prelaw Program

Great Advising. Outstanding Results.


If you are intrigued by the idea of entering a legal profession, Susquehanna’s prelaw program is a great place to start. It is open to students in any major who want to know more about careers in such areas as government, the public interest, prosecution and defense, and the court system. For example, you can pursue a business degree from our AACSB-accredited Sigmund Weis School of Business and also join the prelaw program.

One of the first people you’ll meet is Michele DeMary, Ph.D. As the prelaw advisor, she is a valuable source of advice and information. Whether you’re just starting to consider law school or are well into the application process, you are always welcome to meet with DeMary. Her expertise and one-on-one advising have benefited many students in the law school admissions process.

Susquehanna goes the extra mile, too, by helping prelaw students pay for third-party LSAT prep courses, and by giving free practice exams. Since 2000, 80 percent of SU students who have applied for admission have been admitted to one or more law schools. It doesn’t get much better than that!

Joining the Mock Trial Team will give you some flavor of what litigation is like, while improving your advocacy skills. The Prelaw Society is a way to make connections that can last throughout your career. And internships in law offices, court systems and legislative offices are invaluable ways students get experience and learn about possible careers. Prelaw students often get special access to national speakers who come to campus courtesy of the Arlin M. Adams Center for Law & Society.
