Legal career today.

Pre-Law Advising



GW’s Pre-Law Advising is designed to assist and support students as they explore the decision to attend law school and enter a legal career. The  pre-law advisor meets with students and alumni from all GW colleges to provide information and guidance on the process of applying to law school.

  • We support students and alumni as they work to become successful applicants by helping individuals:
  • Explore whether law school is the best fit for their long-term goals;
  • Consider their strengths and weaknesses and reflect on readiness to apply;
  • Prepare for professional exams (LSAT and GRE);
  • Identify potential “best-fit” schools;
  • Develop strong application materials and track progress toward application completion
  • Explore career options
