UT Tyler Pre-Law Academy

The University of Texas at Tyler has enhanced its pre-law minor to create the new Pre-Law Academy to help students get into the top law schools. The Academy is also designed to encourage East Texas high school students to consider pursuing a career in law.

UT Tyler has many successful lawyers on the alumni roster who have expressed how well the University prepared them for law school. This program will not only prepare students academically, but will also provide the guidance necessary to make them strong law school applicants.

Operating in the College of Arts and Sciences, the Academy has three components:

  • Pre-College: A multi-layered effort to recruit talented students by delivering programs and hands-on activities in the K-12 space that nurture a desire to study law.
  • Undergraduate Program: An enhanced pre-law minor that provides students all the necessary content to master the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
  • Application/Admission: A pre-law advisor to work closely with students to ensure they have the strongest possible law school application through workshops, internships and career seminars featuring lawyers and current law school students.

“We have many successful lawyers among our alumni,” said Dr. Neil Gray, College of Arts and Sciences dean. “This Academy is an opportunity to build on that foundation and give our students an edge when it comes to successfully applying to and completing law school.”
