A pre-law student has many choices where academic majors are concerned. There is no one course of study that serves as a prerequisite for admission to law school. Present-day law students have undergraduate degrees in everything from English, history or management to psychology, nursing, biology, education and communications, to name only a few.
To be accepted into law school, however, a student should score well on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and have a superior grade point average, preferably 3.30 or better. For the more competitive law schools, higher GPA and LSAT are required.
