Pre-Law | College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences


Welcome to the UNT Office of Pre-Law Advising!

Pre-law advising helps students interested in a career as a lawyer make good choices and achieve their goals. We advise students from their first year at UNT through the law school application process. Our services are available to all current UNT students, as well as UNT alumni seeking admission to law school. We are not affiliated with UNT-D's law school, and we do not have expertise in paralegal programs.

Please note, pre-law is not an academic major at UNT. You should major in something that you will enjoy and in which you can maintain a good GPA. There is no right major for those wanting to go on to law school. Any major will work (including majors in the arts and natural sciences), though we do recommend you take some courses through your undergraduate career that emphasize strong writing and reasoning skills to help you prepare for law school. Pre-law advising is available for all students of all majors.

To learn more, visit the Office of Pre-Law Advising Canvas Page. Current students can self-enroll in the course so that it appears on your Canvas dashboard.

To receive updates about law-related events on campus and in the community (including practice LSATs, meetings with law school admissions representatives, and other workshops), sign up for e-mails here.

To make an appointment:

Zoom appointments for Fall 2023 are available Wednesday from 11:00am - 5:00pm and Thursdays from 12:00am - 2:00pm.

Note that appointments only open two weeks in advance. If you try to scehdule an appointment and it appears I have no remaining availability for the semester, that simply means that I am booked for the next two weeks. Keep checking back for new availability.
