The law school has a pre-law program for those students who would like some exposure to U.S. law before commencing their studies at the law school. The pre-law program is one semester of study during the fall semester that includes courses taught by HILS faculty. Courses include Survey of American Law, Business Law, Human Rights from a Christian Perspective, U.S. Supreme Court Decisions, and others. During this time, you can receive input from HILS professor about your performance and areas that you may need to improve.
Many of our students find that the reading and writing load is the most challenging aspect of law school. Anything that will assist you with improving your reading and English composition skills will be very helpful.
Many different things. Of course, the one obvious benefit of a law degree is that you can qualify to take the bar exam in the United States, and after meeting other requirements, become a licensed U.S. attorney. However, there is much more one can do with a law degree. Because law affects all areas of society, law school graduates can be found in various fields such as government, business, diplomacy, entertainment, etc.
Many students at HILS are interested in seeking employment with international organizations such as the United Nations or with non-governmental organizations. Others will be seeking jobs with law firms in Korea that have an international practice as well as with multinational corporations that have in-house legal departments. Still others may work with church groups and missionary organizations. The law degree is flexible.
No. In fact, most of our students have not had any formal legal training. Current students did majors in universities ranging from business administration to psychology to music. We have a few students who were undergraduate Korean law majors.
