Although there is no specific undergraduate pre-law major, or even a specific recommended major for the would-be lawyer, steps can and should be taken in preparation for a successful career in Law. Forethought, dedication, and good advice can help make those plans solid.
If you believe you would like to be a lawyer, probably the first thing you should do is go to the section of this website, "What is a lawyer?" If you still want to be a lawyer once you have read that, then proceed to "Pre-Legal Education." After reading that, you can focus on your own education, until about the middle of your junior year, when you should make an appointment to see one of the UD prelaw advisers listed below. And while you are thinking about prelaw, you may want to consider joining the U.D. Legal Fraternity Phi Alpha Delta.
Finally, this is a guide designed for University of Delaware students, but readers should also consult the excellent resources available on the LSAC website, the company responsible for administering the LSAT. While you will necessarily consult this site often if you ultimately decide to apply to law school, you might begin with by perusing the informative section entitled 'Thinking About Law School.'
