Pre-Law Advising

Thorne Hall on Oxy's campus

Occidental offers pre-law advising for students and alumni including workshops, personal statement advising and guidance when applying to law schools.

Through one-on-one counseling and individualized support, pre-law adviser Thalia González guides pre-law students in making well-informed decisions and building important skill sets. In addition, support is provided for writing personal statements, navigating the law school application process and networking with Oxy alumni that are currently in the law field. This support is available to those who want to enroll in law school immediately following graduation as well as those who choose to take time off first.
