Law (Pre-Professional)

A legal education prepares students for careers far beyond the courtroom. Lawyers serve as advisors for companies and governments and advocates for people and families. They must be effective communicators, excellent researchers and have a background in ethics and human psychology.

Students interested in pursuing a legal career can begin their education at Clatsop with the Associate of Arts, Oregon Transfer (AAOT) degree. Your advisor can help you research careers and transfer opportunities and can develop an educational plan to maximize your studies at Clatsop.
