Advisor: Mary Sprunger
Semester
 Hours: 18

The pre-law minor is an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental minor designed to complement a variety of majors. It prepares students for a range of careers including the traditional practices of law, but it also builds upon EMU's historic emphases on peacebuilding, justice and global awareness, thus providing a strong background for careers in mediation, environmental law, international development, politics, human rights work, victim offender reconciliation, and juvenile justice. Pre-law minors are also expected to be actively involved in our pre-law society, Res Judicata, that organizes events to help students encounter a wide variety of legal professions, and provides resources to help students prepare for the LSAT exam that is required for admission into law school. The minor consists of 18 semester hours including an internship.
