Associate in Arts - Direct Transfer Agreement (AA-DTA)
Law careers can be built upon interests in accounting, corporate management, public
administration, politics, criminal investigation, as well as legal practice. Most
law schools do not require specific undergraduate programs, but recommend courses
appropriate for the baccalaureate degree of the student’s choice. Pre-law students
should have the ability to read, write, and speak English well, a critical understanding
of human values and institutions, and the creative power to think.
