If you wish to pursue a law degree after completing your bachelor's degree, you are not limited in your choice of a particular undergraduate degree. Law schools have no preference of major, so you can choose a major that is a good fit for you rather than one you think will look good on your future law school application. At Cardinal Stritch University, we offer variants of the English and history programs that are designed to prepare you for law school, but you are not limited to those programs. Regardless of your chosen major, courses that develop skills in reading, writing, critical thinking and analytical reasoning – skills that will be necessary in law school and in a legal career – will help in your successful admission to and completion of law school.
If interested in law school, you should meet with a pre-law advisor at Stritch to explore the profession and determine whether it will be a good fit. The advisor will be able to assist with outlining a timeline for your pre-law preparation and with helping you develop a competitive edge for law school admission.
