I am a 17 yr old male enrolled as a freshman at Mississippi College. I am thinking I would like to go into pre law. As of now, I am a history major. How do the two go hand in hand? There is a History/Prelaw selection under the major box.

There is a difference in the course curriculum for History, and History Pre-law. I am trying to help my mom and family. She has been a single mother to myself and brother all our lives. It's time to help her for a change. #mclaw #history #law #law-practice #lawyer...
