as graduate programs and careers related to law.  Law schools do not require applicants to have a specific major or to have taken specific classes, but they do emphasize that certain skills are essential to success in their programs.  This program offers students a guided path to developing those skills, while allowing  the freedom to major in a subject that interests them. The program is suggested for individuals considering law school or graduate programs with a legal emphasis.
