The Pre-Law Program provides students with access to a variety of resources, activities, and events that focus on mastering the law school admissions process, preparing for a legal education, and understanding the various career paths in the legal profession.
The Pre-Law Program represents a menu of choices rather than a specific program of studies, and students who are thinking about becoming a lawyer or who are interested in the law may select their own level of involvement in the Pre-Law Program.
At the center of the Pre-Law Program is the Pre-Law Advisor. The William Volkman Chair of Business and Law, a chair endowed by alumni in honor of a former professor at Wheaton College, is held by a tenure-track professor who teaches law-related classes in the Department of Business and Economics and Department of Politics and International Relations and who serves as the Pre-Law Advisor.
