Henry Pre-Law Center advisors provide guidance to students about the law school admissions process. This includes tailored advice about the different law school options available to each student, how to prepare for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), and ways to improve personal statements. Students interested in pre-law should review Miami's Pre-Law Advising Guide, which includes detailed information for pre-law students on thinking about law school, preparing for law school, and applying for law school.
