Prelaw Advisors at The College of New Jersey

The single best resource you have available to you are the Prelaw Advisors at The College of New Jersey.  Students (whether incoming or already on campus) are encouraged to consult with a Prelaw Advisor at their earliest opportunity — before they declare a major and even before they select courses for their first term on campus. Each member has special insights into the law school application process.  And several members, being lawyers, have additional information they can share about being in law school and, later, in law practice.

The names, departments, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses of the Prelaw Advisors appear to the right.  Be sure to contact these faculty members, as they can help to guide you though the process of successfully getting into law school.
