There is no specific major designed for prelaw students. Law schools want students in majors that teach them how to write, read, speak, and think. Unlike medical school there are no specific courses required as an undergraduate. Prelaw undergraduates should seek a major they are going to love, that will impress an admissions committee, and prepare them for the academic demands of law school. Although you can go to law school with any major, popular majors for prelaw students at FSU include Business, Communication, Criminology and Criminal Justice, English, History, International Affairs, and Political Science. Students interested in going to law school should visit during their first semester to locate prelaw advisors and to learn about prelaw services at FSU.
