Pre-Law Advising at Ohio State

For most students at Ohio State, the college where your major is located will determine who your Pre-Law Advisor is.  These advisors have knowledge of what law schools are looking for in potential candidates and are available to work with students on how best to prepare for law school.  

Contact the individual listed in your college or academic unit to schedule an appointment. If your college is not listed below, please contact Kevin Freeman, Pre-Law Coordinator (freeman.259@osu.edu) to be connected with a Pre-Law Advisor.
