Law School


Political Science is widely regarded as an excellent pre-law major.  Knowledge of constitutional and international law, government institutions, and policymaking provides our majors with a platform for pursuing law school and the subsequent practice of law. 

Students with an interest in law school are encouraged to speak with their political science advisor or contact the Office for Undergraduate Students.

Each year, approximately 35% of our majors attend law school the semester after graduating from Villanova.  Some of the law schools our graduates attend and have attended include:
