Creativity and law? It’s not the stretch it might appear to be. Creativity and innovation are essential for pre-law courses, law students and lawyers. That’s why law schools seek students with strong liberal arts backgrounds.
Preparation for Law School
Pre-law is not a major at Hollins. Students who want to go on to law school can major in anything they like. Still, Hollins recommends taking an array of courses that will help build a solid foundation for law school. Students will find courses that emphasize reading, comprehension, analysis, and writing useful. Our advisors help students find pre-law courses that will best prepare them to get into, and thrive in, law school.
What Our Graduates Say
Begin to Think Like a Lawyer
The education I received at Hollins prepared me richly for the challenges I would face as a law student. The dynamic courses offered by the political science department taught me invaluable analytical and research skills — tools that I used daily in law school and that have served me well as a practicing attorney.Tiffany Marshall Graves, University of Virginia School of Law graduate, pro bono counsel, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings
Gain Confidence, Communicate Effectively
My distinction as a women’s college graduate gave me the tools to excel in law school and to set myself apart from my Ivy League-adorned law school classmates. Hollins gave me a confident voice, a dedication to embodying female leadership, and the skills to deftly navigate the competitive legal job market.Elysse Stolpe, University of Virginia School of Law
