Pre-Law

 

Rhodes College has a long history of successfully sending graduates to law school. The college allows students interested in the law to choose any major. Roughly 10% of each Rhodes graduating class applies to attend law school.

Graduates have gone on to hold prominent positions in the legal profession including Supreme Court Justice (Abe Fortas ’30), several Supreme Court law clerks, Federal Appellate and District Court Judges, State Attorneys General, U.S. Attorneys, prosecutors, public defenders, and equity partners.

The college also hosts a nationally renowned Mock Trial program. Rhodes College Mock Trial teams have won the National Championship on four occasions, and hold the record for consecutive national tournament appearances.

Students interested in attending law school can contact pre-law advisor Professor Anna Eldridge ’02.

Our pre-law track is tailored to incorporate the Rhodes liberal arts curriculum.

Mock Trial is an academic activity designed to challenge those who are interested in law, debate, or other forms of forensics.

A variety of Rhodes College programs serve as excellent pre-law majors.
