What will I learn?

The Association of American Law Schools says students interested in a law degree need a broad undergraduate liberal arts education that provides "comprehension and expression in words, critical understanding of the human institutions and values with which the law deals and creative power in thinking."

Since no particular major is required, select a major that stirs your curiosity and inspires you. Choose an academically rigorous major which encourages independent and analytical thinking.


When selecting your undergraduate courses, consider the following:

  • A wide knowledge of history, literature, philosophy and economics is excellent preparation for law school;
  • Communication skills are especially important for the pre-law student. The ability to organize thoughts and to express them clearly in speech and in writing is essential;
  • Choose elective courses that require critical and analytical thinking and writing;
  • Courses requiring research papers and essay exams are valuable;
  • An understanding of quantitative methods and statistical analysis is important;
  • A course in Logic (Phil 125) will be especially helpful when you take the Law School Admission Test. Specific sections of the LSAT focus on logic and analytical reasoning.


A bachelor's degree from Wichita State can open doors to advanced law degrees and careers in many legal-related fields - from court reporting to arbitration.
