Program: Pre-Law

Pre-Law

Wofford’s pre-law program holds workshops and activities throughout the year aimed at preparing students for law school admission. During January, the college’s pre-law program facilitates internship opportunities as well as an Interim class in which students move beyond the classroom into the courthouses and offices of judges, public defenders, solicitors and private attorneys across the Southeast. In addition, our pre-law program includes seminars that will assist in the application process, regular talks on different aspects of the legal profession and the LSAT Bootcamp.

The Pre-Law Society at Wofford College offers one of the most comprehensive mentoring programs for students interested in attending law school and practicing in the legal field available in undergraduate education today.
