Coursework and Skills to Emphasize
In addition to choosing a major, choosing courses is also important. Pre-Law students should choose courses that are challenging, and offer opportunities to do extensive writing and independent research.
Pre-Law students should seek out classes that develop the following skills that are important to law schools:
- Critical Thinking
- Problem Solving
Law school and the Law School Admission Test require both natural and honed abilities of logical and analytical thinking. Pre-Law students are encouraged to take classes that help develop these capacities, including philosophy and theory classes.
