General Pre-Law (GEPL) is for students interested in entering Law School after graduation. The Student Success Center offers a General Pre-Law progarm that provides guidance in selecting a major best suited for the student and his or her particular area of interest. Since there is no recommended major for entrance into law schools, students should focus on developing proficiency in writing and speaking, reading, researching, analyzing, and thinking logically. A college degree and a satisfactory score on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) are generally required for admission to an approved law school. Dr. Henry Mannle, a pre-law advisor, can provide information regarding law school admission requirements and standards and can assist students in planning a program for careers in law.
Tennessee Technological University also offers two activities specifically designed for students interested in the study or practice of law. First, the Pre-Law Society keeps members in touch with law schools, legal issues, and the culture of the legal profession. The second, Mock Trial, is open to members of the Pre-Law Society and students who have participated in mock-trial competitions in high school.
