What is the best major to receive your bachelors in, if you want to go to law school after.

So I would love to be a lawyer one day. Since you have to do your undergrad first what do you suggest receiving your bachelors in. #law #female-lawyer #undergraduate #bachelorsdegree

I'd echo Jenna's answer- what you choose isn't as important as how well you do in it. My undergraduate degree was in computer science; I feel like it was an asset in certain classes in law school (particularly Wills, Trusts & Estates, where will are often structured as large if/then/else blocks, and Copyright/Trademarks). I'd suggest making sure it is an area of study in which you excel so that you can guarantee yourself a good grade point average, which is quite important in law school admission.

I'd suggest taking a more serious undergraduate degree, but I don't believe there are many majors that would be disqualifying.

Jenna’s Answer

Your major isn't super-important, but your grades are. I was a journalism undergraduate, but I had law school friends who were business majors, education majors, and liberal arts. The important thing is to get into undergraduate, to get good grades and to develop the critical thinking and communicating skills necessary to succeed as an attorney if you really want to go to law school. You could also visit with your school's career counselor to see what they suggest, based on your interests an aptitudes. Good luck!
