Our Mission Statement
The Pre-Law program helps achievement-oriented students make informed decisions about pursuing a career in legal professions; assists them in assessing the academic, personal, and professional competencies and credentials they need to become successful applicants and students of the Law Schools they aspire to attend; and provides access to the academic and career advisement, resources, opportunities, and professional networks that will support them in clarifying and achieving their goals.
Qualified and highly motivated participants of the Pre-Law program at Brooklyn College, who have utilized its vast resources, have developed skills such demonstrating incisive and independent intellectual judgment and problem-solving skills, reading and analyzing dense and complicated texts closely, and creating exemplary works of compelling, effective, and scholarly writing.
The Magner Career Center has prepared a comprehensive handbook that answers some general questions, is designed to help students realize if a career in law is a definite and right fit for them, and contains information on the requirements of the program.
