About the Minor

Law schools seek young men and women with strong analytical and communication skills that can express themselves both orally and in writing.  While there is no Pre-Law major at Johnson C. Smith University, the Association of American Law Schools advises that pre-law students “major in the field in which he is most interested and do as well as he can in all his subjects.” At Johnson C. Smith, our Pre-Law students have majored in a wide variety of majors ranging from English to Psychology.  Oftentimes, JCSU pre-law students interested in pursuing a law degree or a career in the law find courses in History, Criminology, Political Science, Business and even Sport Management that meet their academic interests and needs.  The Pre-Law minor has been designed to prepare students for admission to and success in law school and the legal profession.  Students will be required to complete 18 Credit Hours of specified courses, maintain a 2.5 GPA, and satisfy all other University requirements. Successful completion of the minor will be recognized on the student’s transcript.
