What Can I Do With A Pre Law Degree?

Law School

Because there are no preferred majors for admission into most law schools, our pre-law program offers multiple disciplines – from English and Business to Political Science and History – to help you fulfill the entrance requirements to your school of choice. And the field of law is often a lucrative profession, highly in demand. Today, the median annual salary for lawyers1 is $122,960 and the profession has a projected growth rate of 6 percent over the next several years.


With the right certification, you could pursue a career as a high school teacher, where the median income is currently $61,660 and the job growth rate is projected to hold steady at 4 percent over the next decade2. This program can also help you pursue a postsecondary teaching position where, with a median annual salary of $79,540, employment opportunities are projected to grow 11 percent by 20283.


Or use your education as a springboard into an alternative field of law as a paralegal or legal assistant where the salary averages $51,740 per year and the job growth rate is right at 12 percent.
