I also was in NJHS and I do girls golf. I would love to do ice hockey but currently can’t because my school does not offer it. Thanks for any help!

Is law school hard? What do I major in to become a good lawyer?

Hello! What is the best major/s to choose for an aspiring lawyer. Is law school hard? I'm a freshmen in college and feel lost a little... I would love to become a lawyer but I heard it's difficult. I also don't know where to start because I'm switching my major and realized that the only passion I somewhat have is something in law/forensics/etc. I also don't want to obtain a degree in a useless major or in something where the pay is bad. I don't know. I could use some advice.
