Pre-Law Advising


George Mason has three pre-law advisors; one for Policy, Government and International Affairs majors, one for non-majors and one for alumni. These pre-law advisors can be contacted through the Contact Us! link below. Prior to meeting with a pre-law advisor you should print and fill out the Pre-Law Applicant Questionnaire (below) and bring it to your meeting.


Pre-Law Majors

According to the American Bar Association, there is no best major for law school.  The best major for law school acceptance is the major that you enjoy–grades are a more significant factor than major.


Pre-Law Advisors

If you’re thinking about law school, you’ll need all the advice you can get.  It’s not just about whether or not you should attend, but about how to get in and how to succeed afterward.

Many Schar students are looking to practice law, and we want them to make the best decisions they can.  Toward that end, we have three pre-law advisors available to provide the guidance and support necessary.  You can find their names and office hours below.
