National recognition

'Best Value Schools' names UD Pre-Law top program fourth year in a row

The web site named the University of Dayton’s Pre-Law Program a National Top 25 Best Value pre-law program for the fourth year in a row. Their criteria included affordability and assessing how well a program “allow(s) you to hone critical thinking, writing and research skills, preparing you for a profession that serves people and institutions.” Specifically regarding UD’s pre-law program they note:

“The University of Dayton is the only program in this pre-law degree ranking that offers a special Pre-law minor that students can pair with any major. UD's Prelaw program provides a number of standard services like LSAT prep and networking, and the major itself only requires two "core" courses: Symbolic Logic and American Judicial Process. The rest of the coursework covers topics as esoteric as the playwright Tom Stoppard and International Business Finance. This broad mandate gives aspiring lawyers unprecedented flexibility to take the courses that best support their individual goals. And with the support of academic advisors and the school's Phi Alpha Delta pre-law fraternity, students will have no trouble tailoring their course load to prepare them as thoroughly as possible for law school.”
