A successful career in law demands proficiency in three-skills areas: the ability to think critically, the ability to analyze information from a variety of sources and apply that analysis to solving problems, and the ability to communicate that analysis to others. While completion of any undergraduate degree program confers eligibility for law school, the most successful candidates often come from programs located in the Liberal Arts which emphasize mastery of these skills. ECU offers two programs, Politics, Law and Society, which have proven especially successful in helping graduates attain success in law school. The specific choice of major (and minor), however, should be tailored to match the interests and particular needs of each student. Please contact the Pre-Law advisor in the Department of Politics, Law and Society for more information.
Note: There are no separate degree check-sheets or plans currently available for this program.
