什么是法律预科?

The term “pre-law” refers to a course of study intended to prepare students for law school. Top law schools prefer strong subject area majors in their applicants. You can major in any subject and still enter law school, as long as you successfully complete your bachelor’s degree and take the LSAT (the law school entrance exam).

Rigorous Liberal Arts Formation

Law school is academically intensive, involving a heavy load of reading, understanding complex written material, and a generous dose of logic, 历史, 修辞, 写作, 研究, 批判性分析. Use your undergraduate classes to explore the liberal 艺术; enroll in courses that focus on reading, 写作, 批判性思维.

The point of a liberal 艺术 education is to develop analytical and communication skills that have broad application. You need to be able to understand information through oral and written forms, to respond to that information morally and imaginatively, 分析论点, examine and evaluate evidence, and to communicate cogently.

最佳法律预科专业

There are no specific courses you have to take to be admitted to law school; there is no set list of “prerequisites.” A major that will prepare you for law school is one that is rigorous. Some examples of pre-law majors that can help students prepare for law school include philosophy, 英语, 经济学, 历史, 政治科学.

According to the Law School 入学 Council (LSAC), the most common major among 2015-2016 law school applicants was political science. 英语 is among the top five most common majors, and philosophy majors tend to be top law school applicants.
