In his Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville said that "In America, everything, sooner or later, becomes a legal question." And today, no matter what the dispute -- whether "under God" can remain in the Pledge of Allegiance, who owes who what and for how much, or how the U.S. must treat those suspected of terrorism -- attorneys play an important role. To succeed in law, you will need an outstanding undergraduate education that prepares you for rigorous study and professional excellence.

Union University has an exemplary record of helping students receive a first-rate education, with the knowledge and skills that will lead to success in your advanced training and later in your professional life. And Union provides that education in a context of Christian faith and values, with faculty who are both teachers and mentors.

No wonder students have a strong track record of gaining admission to state and private schools such as the University of Tennessee, University of Memphis, Ole Miss, University of Alabama, University of Kentucky, University of South Carolina, and Samford (Cumberland) while other students have gained admission to national law schools such as the University of Virginia, University of Michigan, Notre Dame, and Vanderbilt.

If your career path is leading to law school, then Union will give you the head start you’ll need!
