As a student in the Pre-Law program you can major in anything from Business, Psychology and Communications to Biblical Studies, Children, Youth & Family Studies and Early Childhood Education. There is no specific Pre-Law major at Trinity, nor at any other colleges or universities across the country. In fact, the American Bar Association recommends that instead of focusing on a specific major, students pursue a course of study that is challenging and interesting and that also develops research, writing and critical thinking skills.
Depending on the path you choose in your legal career, some areas may require for you to have expertise beyond the law. In this case, it would be more beneficial for you to choose a major that would prepare you for such specific legal paths. Below are some examples of majors that you might choose if you are interested in a specific legal career path.
As law schools typically do not look for specific majors in their applicant undergraduate studies it is important that you choose a major that will both challenge and interest you. Ultimately law schools measure your abilities through your GPA and LSAT scores.
