Pre-Law

Overview

Mock Trial
Students in Prof. Rob Kearney's business law course conduct a mock trial in the courtroom of Judge Elizabeth Robb, a 1978 IWU graduate and chief judge of the 11th Judicial Circuit of Illinois.

The liberal arts environment provides a rich foundation for students preparing for law school, since there is no single undergraduate major that is ideal for all students considering law school.

You’ll benefit from courses that require you to read challenging works, to write papers demonstrating verbal organization of complicated materials, and to develop your speaking skills.
