Pre-Law Communication Program: Its Relevance.
Forston, Robert F.
This paper argues that quality pre-law communication programs must be developed through an organized sustained effort in the speech communication field. The development of a pre-legal communication program is discussed in terms of three interrelated states: (1) the development of a specific academic program within the speech communication department in which students, faculty, and administrators can actually identify students as pre-law communication majors ; (2) the pre-law communication program needs to be correlated with other academic subjects helpful in developing the skills and insights useful for the study of law, while also being helpful for pursuing other practical vocational interests if one does not attend law school; and (3) the pre-law communication program should be supplemented by a series of related activities sponsored or encouraged by the speech communication department. Various activities are suggested, such as guest speakers, lectures, and interviews; video tapes; and joint law school activities. The paper concludes with a description of the potential benefits of establishing such a pre-law communication program. (TS)
