Law schools are eager for students who possess strong communication, analytical and research skills, and who have some understanding of what shapes the human experience. As specific courses of study are not required for admission to law schools, the major you choose is not as important as the quality of education you receive. If you are considering law school, you should pursue a degree that is challenging, one that reflects your capacity to perform well at an academically rigorous level.
What is Pre-Law?
Pre-Law is not a major. What many students do not understand is that there is no one, single undergraduate major that is created specifically for students who want to go to law school.
What should I major in if I want to go to law school?
Law schools accept students from a wide variety of majors including those in the liberal arts, business, healthcare and dozens of other fields. There is no one “right” major. What law schools are interested in are students who can think, read and write.
