The pre-law major equips prospective lawyers to be knowledgeable about the legal system in the United States, understanding of alternative approaches to conflict resolution and the pursuit of justice and prepared to pursue a value-based career in a law-related area. It does so through a program of study that is interdisciplinary in approach, historical and contemporary in perspective and informed by a Christian/Anabaptist worldview. Upon completion of the major, students will be prepared to seek employment or pursue advanced study and be able to provide service to society reflective of the values expressed in the Fresno Pacific Idea.
