Law schools throughout the country accept students from a variety of academic majors. Typically, students who wish to enter a law school need a strong academic background, an above-average GPA, and must meet LSAT standards of the school to which they are applying. Marian students who are interested in a career in law are encouraged to major in their own field of interest and take a specially-designed minor program, which provides a stronger generalist background.
