Pre-Law Program

Pre-law majors at George Fox study in a Christian university environment that integrates faith with learning.

Preparing for Law School

The key to becoming a good lawyer is a good undergraduate degree rich in the liberal arts. Law school will teach you the law, but first you need an education preparing you for everything else a good lawyer does: understanding the practical contexts of legal issues, thinking precisely, communicating with clients and courts, and being a servant leader to all kinds of people.

At George Fox you can choose from many majors, pursue extracurricular interests ranging from the arts to athletics, add electives and do an internship. You can complete a minor or perhaps even a second major, and attend law-related events on campus. All of these enhance your chances of getting into a great law school and becoming an excellent lawyer.

Student Experiences

Ron Davis, Harvard Law School graduate (JD) George Fox philosophy and history major

“My George Fox education expanded my worldview, stimulated my curiosity and taught me the art of disciplined, thoughtful inquiry. More uniquely, my professors helped me deconstruct and reconstruct my worldview in an open, supportive, caring Christian environment that welcomed intellectual pursuits as God-honoring, rather than as a threat to established orthodoxies.”
