DePauw University graduates have consistently outpaced their national peers in acceptance to law school. In fact, almost 80% of DePauw applicants are admitted to a law school program.
As a prerequisite to admission, most law schools expect a student to have acquired a sound liberal arts education, regardless of a student’s chosen course of study. The quality of the student's undergraduate preparation far outweighs its particular subject matter or choice of major.
Along with a student’s grade point average, the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) provides the most important statistical data for admission decisions. The LSAT, taken during the summer after the student's junior year, seeks to measure the candidate's verbal abilities and logical and analytical skills. Click here to learn more...
Law schools are also interested in a student’s extracurricular activities, leadership positions, and internship and summer employment experience. Students interested in pursuing a career in law should schedule an appointment with an adviser in the Kathryn F. Hubbard Center for Student Engagement.

Students are highly encouraged to research legal internships during their undergraduate career. These positions give students valuable first-hand experience prior to their entrance into law school. A handful of such opportunities are listed below.
