If you want to get a jump start though, choose college classes that begin to teach you some of the skills that will be important to succeed in law school. Anything where you can practice reading, comprehension, writing, analytical skills. English, philosophy, comparative lit. You can take some history or government/polysci classes to help you understand the organization of the legal system and place it in context of our larger society. Finally, if you are interested in specific types of law, you could look for similar classes. Some larger colleges offer criminology or forensic classes; you could take gender or elder studies if that type of law might interest you; or get a science major and pursue patent law.
Pre-Law can done as a major or minor when completing your bachelors education. The classes required are different and are unique to each university.
