Undergraduate preparation for law school can take a variety of paths, and students are encouraged to explore their specific interests in the wide variety of programs of study that Monmouth offers. The First Year Advising Office provides resources that assist in guiding students so they can explore options that would tie in with their specific interests and the law.
Students are encouraged to select a major that supports their individual interests and intellectual strengths and consult with an advisor about what major would best suit their goals within the legal world. Monmouth’s B.A. in Political Science with a Concentration in Legal Studies degree program provides a framework for students interested in the law, from preparation for law school to a starting point for paralegal career opportunities.
