Transfer Pattern – Pre-Law
The Pre-Law program does not prepare the student to obtain employment as a paralegal or a legal assistant.
*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, goes into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college in the spring 2010 semester (meaning you have not previously successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the degree to 65-66 credits. PLEASE NOTE: If you are new to college and completed one or more credit courses successfully at CCBC in the fall 2009 semester, you are ENCOURAGED but NOT REQUIRED to take ACDV 101 in the spring 2010 semester.
Transfer Pattern Description:
This degree pattern is designed to help students transfer to colleges and universities that offer a four-year baccalaureate degree with a major in Law or a similar program. Beyond the general education requirements and other degree, program and elective requirements, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the anticipated transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or advisor for information about specific requirements.
This curriculum is designed to transfer to University of Baltimore’s Jurisprudence Program, University of Maryland University College’s Legal Studies Program, and Stevenson University's Paralegal Studies Program. Courses in the Pre-Law curriculum include an examination of the structure and function of the state and federal legal systems, the development of fundamental research skills, and an introduction to core concepts covered in law school. Students will have the opportunity to explore specific areas of the law as electives, such as family law, real estate law, and business law, among other courses. Most importantly, this course of study will enhance the fundamental critical thinking skills that are necessary for success in the study of law.
