As the former Director of Admissions at University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law, Dr. Robert Klostermeyer is uniquely qualified to advise and teach students who are considering law school as the next step in their academic career.
Political Science at SBU
The Association of American Law Schools does not recommend a specific pre-law major as the preferred background or preparation for law school. Political Science at SBU is one of the majors that have been identified as providing the requisite foundation for success in law school. The major does an excellent job of developing the skills that law students need to excel in that environment.
- SBU Students have interned at numerous government agencies and with political leaders in Washington D.C. and Jefferson City, Missouri. (Fmr. State Senator Delbert Scott and U.S. Senator Roy Blunt)
- Students graduating from the pre-law program (History & Political Science) are attending/have attended law school at the University of Virginia, University of Missouri-Columbia, University of Missouri of Missouri-Kansas City, Washburn University, and St. Louis University.
- Graduates of law school can find employment in many areas including private practice, government, and legal departments of major corporations. There are many other opportunities for employment in all sectors of government and business for those who choose to use a law degree in other ways.
