Law school will prepare you for a wide range of career opportunities. A Doctor of Jurisprudence can lead to a traditional legal career, as well as careers in law enforcement (including the FBI), government, business, economics, politics, teaching, and many others.
There is no specific major that you must choose and no specific set of courses that you must take in order to be well prepared for law school. Pre-law provides you with the freedom to choose from a wide array of undergraduate courses and majors.
What is of paramount importance as an undergraduate student considering law school is your ability to develop strong analytical and oral and written communication skills. The ability to write cogently and coherently, to analyze carefully and accurately, to reason logically, and to speak effectively and articulately will give you the edge you need to successfully complete the rigors of law school.
