High School Students
Interested in Law School?
The PreLaw Advising Team Members at Texas Tech University are here to help guide you through the decision to pursue a legal education.
Considering Law School is a big decision, and should not be taken lightly. As a High School Student, it is important to take the time to explore your decision to fully understand what it means to study law. Obtaining an internship with a law firm, or shadowing a lawyer in your hometown, is a wonderful way to familiarize yourself with the law environment.
As an incoming freshman, knowing what major to study is the first step. There are over 150 different academic programs to choose from at Texas Tech University. Attending Law School does not require or recommend any specific major, however Texas Tech does offer a Legal Studies Minor for students who are interested in Law School upon graduation.
Once you become a student at Texas Tech, you are eligible to participate in the PreLaw Program. The Program provides students with access to Ambassadors for any questions they might have about the Law School Process. It is a free, four year program that allows students to become aware of the requirements for applying to Law School while also providing opportunities to become more familiar with aspects of the application such as the LSAT. Each semester, the PreLaw program offers free Mock LSAT's for students to practice the exam in an actual testing environment.
