Warren’s Answer

I agree with the previous comment that you should fulfill the general distribution requirements of any undergraduate school that you attend. Some colleges refer to a "pre-law" curriculum, but there really is no such thing. Law schools won't reject you for lack of a pre-law curriculum, whatever that means. I do recommend, however, that you not shy away from classes which will improve your analytical reading and writing skills. Those skills will help you in any field you choose, but will especially help you in law. Some of the best lawyers I know were math majors in college, too. I think those people benefitted from developing the ability to recognize which problems can be solved and then not giving up until the solution has been achieved. Good luck.

Frank’s Answer

Hi Zymeria, almost all professions require some math background nowadays. The amount of science requirement will vary. If you're planning to study law, then math and science will be less necessary than for other careers such as engineering or as a scientist. But you'll likely have to take a math course and a science class to fulfill your general education requirements towards an undergraduate degree. I suggest going to a local community college and request to meet with a guidance counselor to find out more about legal training and what courses will be required. Then, you'll have an idea of what lies ahead.

Camille’s Answer

Hi Zymeria:
For a lot of lawyers, their job involves mainly reading, researching, and writing. Science or math may be helpful depending on the type of law you want to get into; for example, an environmental lawyer will have to understand the science behind different environmental issues. Some patent lawyer require a science or engineering degree for your undergraduate degree, because patent law requires understanding science or engineering concepts.
