About Pre-Law Advising

The Pre-Law Advising Office within Letters & Sciences supports the overall mission and objectives of the University of Maryland.

The Pre-Law Professions Advising Office serves all current and former students at the University of Maryland interested in law school and legal careers. We offer a wide variety of advising services to guide students through the academic and administrative processes necessary to achieve their goals.

Our Pre-Law Advisors encourage students to learn through community service, pre-professional experience, and campus organizations. We help students to become self-directed learners and to assume a significant role in their pre-professional education. We encourage pre-law students to become broadly educated and to take advantage of personal growth opportunities while exploring their interest in a prospective career in law.
