Any student who has interest in pursuing legal study should get the most from their undergraduate education at Siena College. While no one curricular path serves as the gateway for preparation for law school, students should choose courses, whether in business, humanities, natural sciences or social sciences that sharpen their analytical reasoning and writing skills.
Intensive preparation for the study of law has provided our students with acceptance and matriculation to several of the most distinguished law schools in the United States including Ohio State University, Villanova, University of Virginia, and the College of William and Mary. Our alumni, upon graduation from law school, have entered major fields of law practice which include public service, private and corporate law, and the judicial profession.
Unlike a premedical curriculum that contains specific courses, some of which are mandatory, there is no sequence of pre-law courses at Siena College. It is important that students be introduced to broad legal principles and the case law approach to provide them with an informational basis to decide whether they want to continue with a legal education.
