Pre-Law Program at Miami University
The Pre-Law Center, located in the Sue Henry Pre-Law Program Suite, 159 Upham Hall, serves as a place for all things pre-law. In addition to housing the program's administrative offices, it provides a resource library that students may use to reference topics such as law school admissions, different areas of legal practice, how to transition from college to law school, and insight into the law school experience.
Computers are available for students to research and apply to law schools. The center is also a great place for students to gather to discuss legal issues or study in groups for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT).
