Question: If I intend to go to law school, what should I major in now?

Answer: All students preparing for professional training in law should select an academic major, follow the suggested transfer plan for the associate degree, and plan to complete a baccalaureate degree in their major field. A broad liberal arts curriculum is the preferred preparation for law school.

Such a broad liberal arts curriculum involves education for comprehension and expression in words, critical understanding of the human institutions and values with which the law deals, and creative power in thinking. Most law schools require that the Law Admissions Test (LSAT) be taken during the first semester of the senior year.
