Prelaw Advisors

Once the student has made the initial contact, Dr. Roberts will either work with the student directly or ask another Prelaw Advisor to consult with the student. Students (whether incoming or already on campus) may also wish to contact a Prelaw Advisor directly — for example, a professor who teaches in an academic area of particular interest to them. In any case, the easiest way to initiate contact is by e-mail or by phone. The names, departments, e-mail addresses and phone numbers of each of the Prelaw Advisors are listed in the right-hand panel of this page.

Once the student is on campus, meetings with the student’s Prelaw Advisor should be scheduled by the student each semester. Matters to be discussed include the selection of the major and any minors or concentrations as well as the next term’s course schedule. (Students who have already chosen a major will also regularly consult with their departmental advisor regarding, among other things, their course schedule. Students who have not yet chosen a major — “Open Option” students — will consult with the academic advisor who has been assigned to them through the Open Option program.) By the end of the sophomore year, the student ordinarily will have selected a major. At that point, discussions with the Prelaw Advisor will begin to cover the details of the law school admissions process and how the student should prepare for that process.
