A high school student recently asked:高中生最近问:

What major should I get before law school to improve my chances of getting admitted into law school? 主要是什么我应该得到法律面前学校来提高我的机会越来越进入法律学校?

Here was my answer:这里是我的答案是:

Years ago, certain undergraduate degrees were preferred by law schools.几年前,某些本科学位的首选法律学校。 Today, law schools consider all degrees to be equal, with a possible exception for a今天,法律学校考虑到所有程度是平等的,可能一个例外 difficult degree (advanced science) being given a very slight edge over an easier degree (eg communications or sociology).困难度(先进的科学)正在考虑一个非常轻微的优势更容易程度(如通讯或社会学) 。

In other words, law school admissions offices generally do not care about the area of your major.换言之,法律学校招生办公室一般不关心该地区的重大。 First and foremost, law schools will look at your GPA and your LSAT score.  In a close tie between you and another applicant, the law school might consider your undergraduate degree area along with other items on your resume, including your personal statement (the essay you submit with your application).首先,法律学校将看看你的全球行动纲领和您最近的评分。在密切联系您与另一申请人,法律学校可能会考虑你的本科学位沿线地区与其他项目上你的简历,包括您的个人声明(本文您提交您的申请) 。

In the old days, the degree area mattered to law schools.  Today, law schools understand the need for lawyers with diverse backgrounds, so the degree area is no longer relevant.在过去,程度地区重要的法律学校。今天,法律学校的理解,需要律师与不同的背景,所以一定程度领域不再是相关的。

I would recommend picking a degree that interests you, since you will enjoy it more, do better in it, and in the long run, have greater interest using that knowledge in your career of choice.我建议挑选程度,您有兴趣,因为你会享受更多,做得更好,并从长远来看,有更大的兴趣,知识使用在您的职业生涯的选择。

Of course, your degree may matter to law firms or potential clients when you are an attorney, especially if you seek a specialized area of law.当然,你的程度可能此事的律师事务所或潜在的客户当你的律师,特别是如果你寻求一个专门的法律领域。 For example, if you pursue personal injury law, your background working in a hospital, experience working in an ambulance, or a degree that is related to health or medicine may help a bit.例如,如果您追求人身伤害的法律,您的背景在医院工作,工作经验在救护车,或在一定程度是有关健康或药品可能会有点帮助。 This reaffirms the importance of pursuing a degree area that interests you, since you may work in an area of law related to that dgree for the rest of your life.这重申必须实现一定程度方面,您有兴趣,因为你可能会在法律领域的相关的dgree ,其余的生活。

Note: If you have any other law school questions, ask them in the new law school forum .注:如果您有任何其他法律学校的问题,要求他们在新的法律学校的论坛。
