|Pre-Law Advisement for High School Students
- Take courses that help you develop skills as well as learn content.
Reading comprehension, writing, speaking, and critical thinking skills are especially
important for a career in law.
- Speak with your teachers and counselors about selecting college
prep courses in Social Studies, English, Foreign Languages, Sciences, and/or Math.
The legal profession needs attorneys with backgrounds in all (science, math, social
studies, language arts, etc.) academic areas.
- Read UNM Pre-Law News to get an idea
of pre-law activities at UNM.
- Contact UNM's Pre-Law Advisor and
arrange to visit a class, speak with pre-law students, or attend a pre-law workshop.
- Attend New Mexico Law Day and speak
with law school representatives, collect handouts and brochures, and meet other
students interested in pre-law.
- Check the Calendar of Events and Pre-Law Workshops for information about the availability of pre-law advisement at special events addressed to high school students. These events
include Senior Day and other advisement sessions either on UNM campus or at your high school.
