Pre-Law Advisement

Admission into a law school requires a bachelor's degree earned in any area of study.  Pre-law is not a major or minor; there are no specific courses required to be admitted into law school.  Yet not all courses of study are created equal.  Students should choose a discipline that fosters the skills required of them to gain admission into a good law school and succeed once they get there.  According to the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC), Political Science is by far the most common major for law school applicants. Others include English, History, and Psychology.
