A lawyer is involved in people's lives as an advocate, negotiator, advisor, mediator, and public citizen and has the responsibility to preserve the rights of individuals and to secure justice in a democratic republic. Students in the pre-law program at K-State meet with an advisor to select courses that will develop capacities necessary for law study.
