Thinking about becoming a lawyer? Are you wondering what law school is like and how you might best prepare for it? What about studying for and taking the LSAT? How do you put together a competitive application? To which law schools can you reasonably expect to gain admission? Which law school will best meet your career goals?

These are the kind of questions that Muhlenberg’s Prelaw Advising program helps you answer. Prelaw Advising is dedicated to helping students and interested alumni learn about law schools and the legal profession. We provide the resources and support that enables students to make informed decisions about whether law school is right for them, as well as helping them to select the best law school to meet their career goals. We assist students in developing and preparing strong application materials.

All students who elect to participate in the prelaw program or who seek advice and direction regarding prelaw studies or applying to law school should contact:
