I came across this posting today by a current law school applicant who talks about why she feels majoring in journalism has prepared her for a law degree. You don’t have to major in pre-law or law and society to prepare yourself for law school. In fact, I felt (as an law student) that the undergraduate courses that best prepared me for law school exams was actually art history. In art history, we looked at slides and applied knowledge to determine a period/artist/movement and wrote an essay defending our conclusions. Sounds like law school, doesn’t it?
