Other Study Opportunities

Prelaw Undergraduate Program

Admission to law school is governed by the student’s college record, including the grade point average and letters of recommendation. The most important factor, however, is the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). No standard prescribed curriculum of undergraduate study specifically prepares students for a law career or is required by law schools, although most consider a broad liberal arts program desirable. For further information, contact the Career Development Office or the prelaw adviser, Roger Berkowitz. Interested students can subscribe to the PreLaw Listserv by composing an e-mail message addressed to majordomo@bard.edu. The body of the message is the following two lines: “subscribe bard prelaw” and “end.”
