The Pre-Law Society

The Ashland University Pre-Law Society is a fully chartered, student-run organization designed to assist students interested in a career in law. Members of this organization network with local attorneys through our legal lecture series, attend trials and visit local law schools. A portion of the organization’s time is spent preparing students to take the LSAT (Law School Admittance Test). Students have the opportunity to take free practice LSAT exams in advance of actually applying to law school and prepare their actual LSAC application forms with the assistance of practicing attorneys from the school of business.

Throughout a student’s undergraduate experience, members of Ashland University’s Pre-Law Society receive curriculum advice from legal specialist in both the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Business & Economics with particular attention paid to the logic and problem-solving techniques preferred by law schools.
