Like most colleges and universities, Luther intentionally does not have a formal pre-law curriculum where students take prescribed courses for law school. There are two reasons for this:
We're concerned that if we provide a neat checklist of pre-law courses that students won't take full advantage of their time at Luther to discover themselves.
The beauty of a Luther education is that exploring, taking risks, and challenging oneself is the best way to prepare for law school if that remains one’s goal. In short, we believe the best way to prepare for law school is not to think of the Luther education as a means to the study of law but as an end in itself.
For many years Luther has had good success in preparing students for the study of law using this approach and will continue to do so in the years ahead.
