Dual Admission Honors Law

Every year, more than 50,000 students nationwide plan to attend law school, but only a small percentage of those students conscientiously select an undergraduate course of study that will help them in law school and beyond.

An undergraduate degree from a technological university such as Illinois Tech can be advantageous for a future lawyer. Illinois Tech is one of only a few institutes of technology with a law school, and can provide a competitive advantage as opportunities in patent, healthcare, and intellectual property law continue to grow.
