  • 0

So, you think you want to go to law school.  If you don’t know which courses to take during your time at F&M, you are not alone.  Many pre-law students find themselves at a loss when they are trying to select courses or decide upon a major.  Because there is no required coursework for law school – like there is for medical school – pre-law students are often left without much (or any) guidance when selecting their undergraduate courses.  Rest assured, if you choose an area of study that interests and challenges you, you will put yourself in a good position for success in law school and beyond.  Below are some points to think about as you consider the right academic path for you.
