Pre-Law with History Major Concentration | Judson University Christian College

History Pre-Law Major

The History Pre-Law major builds pre-law preparation into the history major at Judson University. The history major helps develop the reading, thinking, and writing skills necessary for law school preparation, and provides context to help understand current issues related to international and U.S. law. These courses are supplemented by additional coursework to expand conceptual and oral communication abilities pertinent to future legal training.
