Pre-Requisites and Recommended Classes

The feedback Sarah Lawrence students receive most from law schools is the value of our liberal arts education. In addition to courses such as International Law and Human Rights, it is incredibly important that students take full advantage of our interdisciplinary curriculum, immersing themselves in a range of subjects from dance to literature and economics.

Sample Orientations, Workshops, Guest Speakers, and Other Programs

Each year, the Pre-Law advisers offer a diverse array of programming from informational sessions, a panel of law school admissions directors, and networking with alumni attorneys and fellow pre-law students. Students also regularly complete internships at The Legal Aid Society, Human Rights Watch, Brennan Center for Justice, and firms such as Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, LLP.
