The Pre-Law Program at The College of New Rochelle helps students develop the ability to think and write critically and precisely in order to enter law school after graduation.  Offering a strong foundation in the liberal arts, as well as pre-law courses and internship opportunities, the Pre-Law Program provides students with the skills law schools seek, while also educating them on the law, the legal process, and legal careers.

Most students in the program take courses in legal theory, American government, constitutional law, business law, and other courses that sharpen analytical and writing skills, as well as enhance verbal comprehension and expression.  These courses reflect the ethical dimensions of the legal profession and stress the importance of law and moral analysis in a free society.

More specifically, the following courses are recommended:
  • Law and the Courts
  • Effective Reasoning
  • Philosophy of Law
  • Introduction to American Government
  • Constitutional Law
  • an introductory mathematics course
  • a pre-law internship
Individualized attention is a great strength of CNR.  As a pre-law student, your pre-law advisor will serve as your resource for information and advice.  Working closely with you to plan courses and programs of study, your advisor will assist you with the law school application process.  Recent graduates have been accepted into some of the most prestigious law schools in the country, including:
  • Columbia University
  • Fordham University
  • St. John's University
  • Pace University
  • SUNY Albany
  • New England School of Law
  • The Catholic University of America
