Graduates – Career Change
Thinking About Law School

Dear Alum,

The University’s St. Thomas More Pre-Law Program is available to assist graduates considering law school with information on the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), the LSAT Examination, and the timing of the overall law school admissions process.

The University has established a Pre-Law Program Office in Olney Hall, Room 355, housing a wide range of information on individual law schools, study guides for all three types of LSAT questions, practice LSAT examinations, as well as information on law school first year programs and financing law school. The office is open five days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and can remain open on evenings and/or on weekends upon request.

As the coordinator of the University Pre-Law Program (Michael R. Dillon, Ph.D., J.D.), I have practiced law for 22 years and I am available for telephone, e-mail and in-person consultation at 215.991.3748,, or in my office, Olney Hall Room 358 adjacent to the Pre-Law Office.

I have information on all law schools admitting La Salle seniors and graduates for the past 10 years as well as the GPA and LSAT scores necessary for admission at those schools. If you are thinking about law school, as a first step, obtain a copy of the 2009-2010 Law School Admission Information Book from the Pre-Law Office or LSAC and then type LSAC into Google going to the LSAC Homepage where you can read up on the entire process.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
