Most colleges do not have a "pre-law" major. In fact, law schools do not recognize the idea of a "pre-law" major. There is no particular course of study that is a prerequisite for admission to law school. Students interested in attending law school and preparing for a career in law should pursue courses that will develop verbal and analytical skills.
Many different majors can lead to a successful career in law. Most majors that are not vocationally oriented, such as elementary education or medical technology, are appropriate as an undergraduate program that would prepare one for law school.
The greatest advantage Xavier offers to the prospective law student is a mandatory core of liberal arts courses. Xavier students, regardless of the major they choose, take courses in history, humanities, literature, foreign language, mathematics, philosophy, science, social science and theology. These courses combined with the major field of study and free electives provide a strong background that makes the Xavier graduate attractive to law schools throughout the United States.
