Pre-law Scholars Program

Marquette University's Pre-law Scholars Program allows students to receive the benefits of Marquette's distinctive liberal arts and sciences education while enjoying conditional admission to the Law School.

Pre-law Scholars complete a bachelor's degree and law degree in only six years rather than the seven years customarily required. Pre-law Scholars complete the undergraduate part of their studies in three years and are awarded a bachelor's degree upon successful completion of their first year in the Law School.

Each year, Marquette will enroll up to 25 students in the Pre-law Scholars program. By fulfilling the conditions to remain in the program, Pre-law Scholars will be admitted to the Law School by the end of junior year.
