UA&P’s Law program provides training in standard competencies expected of lawyers, such as legal reasoning and advocacy. Following worldwide trends in the field of legal education, and helped by its integration within UA&P and within the School of Law and Governance, the Law program is envisioned to increasingly adopt interdisciplinary and international perspectives.
Lex Honors is a 7-year course intended for high school graduates who both wish to take advantage of UA&P’s liberal arts curriculum as a strong preparation for law studies and to obtain a law degree in a shorter time. While the pre-law course is compressed from four to three years, none of the rigors of the law program proper is diminished. The course requires a high school average of 85% in order to qualify.
Like all UA&P students, students in the Law program are provided with personal and professional mentoring.
