Can I study law in the US as an undergraduate?


#1

In New Zealand and Australia, undergraduate students can pursue an L.L.B. which gives them a professional qualification in law. What is the situation in the US?

For undergraduates, selecting a major and charting a career path can be challenging. And for prelaw students, it can be particularly tough to choose a major, since there are no prerequisites for law school, like there are for medical school. The ABA does not recommend any undergraduate majors or group of courses to prepare for a legal education, but some of the more popular pre-law majors include history, English, philosophy, political science, economics, and business. To my knowledge no such program exists for undergraduate students in the United States. However if you are interested in law during undergraduate studies there are classes at most universities which compare current legislature with economic, environmental, and social policies.
