What APs should I take If I want to major in Law
#law-school #law #lawyer #APs
That's awesome that you are interested in a career in Law! I wanted to first point out that Law school is a graduate degree that you would complete after earning a Bachelors of Arts or a Bachelors of Science from an undergraduate program. There are definitely undergraduate majors that are more law focused such as criminal justice, political science, or pre-law, but law schools always admit law students from a huge variety of majors. I know lawyers who majored in Physics, African American Studies, History, and Biology. So to start, study and major whatever interests you, challenges you, and pushes you to succeed the most! AP courses will help you develop analytical, critical thinking, and reading comprehension skills that will help prepare you for the thinking required in Law school.
If you are looking for AP classes that discuss Law, I would consider taking AP Government and for historical context consider taking AP World and AP US History. Again, I want to stress that other AP classes that don't discuss the law will definitely help you build skills needed to get into and succeed in law school. Additionally, any major that you are passionate about for undergraduate degree can be a launching point into law school.
Hope this helps and please follow up with a comment with any other questions!
