  • About: Pre-Law
  • Meet the Faculty

Siena Heights University’s pre-law curriculum consists of a core sequence of courses considered by the university to be most appropriate for students planning to enter law school. The additional list of highly recommended courses will complement a student's breadth of education and, therefore, increase the chances of successfully entering law school.

Students must complete an academic major and although any major is possible, the following are particularly recommended: Accounting, Business Administration, Criminal Justice, English, History, Mathematics, Philosophy, Psychology, and Social Science.


FAST FACT – Siena Heights has an articulation agreement with the University of Detroit Mercy Law School providing up to five seats per year to SHU graduates with a 3.2 cumulative GPA and a LSAT score in the top 50th percentile. 


Siena Heights University recognizes that there is no one correct pre-law preparation. The curriculum presented will prepare students with the skills necessary for law school: reading, writing, reasoning, critical thinking, verbal communication, problem-solving, and breadth of experience and knowledge.

Internships or cooperative work experiences can be arranged through the Career Services Office. Outside speakers will be on-campus to discuss law school preparation, entrance, and survival, as well as career possibilities in law. Special pre-law advisors and our Philosophy department faculty will assist students in counseling and advising.
