2006-2008 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Pre-Law


For the past two decades, faculty members in political science and philosophy have taken the lead in advising the majority of SRU’s future attorneys.  While law schools have advised us that students may prepare for the study of law through a variety of academic majors or programs, students interested in legal education will benefit from seeking the advice of faculty with experience in counseling the many students who have successfully gone on to law school and the practice of law from Slippery Rock University.  

Students at Slippery Rock University have succeeded at law schools across the country, including Fordham, Georgetown, Emory, Maryland, American, Florida, Temple, Syracuse, as well as Harvard and Yale.  In almost any given year, SRU students who have worked with our program advisors will also be attending regional programs at the University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne, and Penn State, Dickenson.  

Students who are interested in preparing for a legal education and pursuing a career in law are strongly encouraged to make appointments and speak with Dr. Richard Martin 724-738-2434 or Dr. Walter Powell 724-738-2432 in the Department of Political Science, located in the Spotts World Culture Building. These faculty members will work with students to design a course of studies suited to individual interests and needs.  This service is intended for all students regardless of major.
