Admittance to professional school of law is available to students with a variety of major fields of concentration. Law schools are less interested in a specific program of study that could be called a pre-law major, but rather are interested in a number of specific skills, most of which are concentrated in the use of language and the communication arts.
Students seeking admittance to law schools are advised to select a major appropriate to their own interests but to be sure to include as many courses as possible to assist them for the use of the English language in its written and oral forms. In addition, students are encouraged to consider that the practice of law involves the handling and administration of other people’s money and estates and will also involve dealing with all types of individuals. Thus, students are well advised to seek those courses that prepare them to understand human growth and development, general psychological principles, and sufficient accounting or related business courses to familiarize them with the administrative details of the handling of financial affairs. Therefore, in addition to the student’s specific major field, the following courses should be considered as recommended for pre-law majors.
