Pre-Law Concentration

The field of law is important and exciting. While Hiram College does not offer an actual pre-law degree, it does provide students with the guidance and coursework necessary to help them gain acceptance to law school after graduating from Hiram. Students can also choose to participate in the 3+3 BA/JD program through Hiram College’s partnerships.

The 3+3 BA/JD program allows eligible students to enter one of three Law Schools in Ohio after completing three years at Hiram. Eligible students will then complete three years of study at their choice School of Law to complete their BA/JD. Learn more about each partner university with the links below.

“Something unique I’ve done at Hiram is research on housing segregation and the disparities it causes for minorities. It really helped me to connect what I wanted to do and the people I wanted to protect.”
