Although Loyola Marymount University is affiliated with Loyola Law School, there is no official Pre-Law Undergraduate Major. The University does have a Pre-Law Advisory Program to assist students in preparing for and applying to law school. While it is important for students that want to go on to law school to develop the ability to use language, communicate effectively, and think critically and creatively, there is no particular major that is best for pre-law students. Students are highly encouraged to major in a subject or discipline that they are passionate about.
The University's Pre-Law Advisor is Political Science professor Dr. Janie Steckenrider. If you are interested in pursuing law school, or have any questions, contact Dr. Steckenrider at:Phone: (310) 338-7374Email: Jstecken@lmu.edu Office: University Hall 4120
