Preparation for law school involves a multifaceted approach to learning in both academic and professional environments. While we do not recommend any one particular course of study, it is possible to sketch the desirable areas to include in a prelegal curriculum. First, the ability to express oneself accurately, both orally and in writing, is essential to understanding legal ideas. Courses such as English composition and others designed to develop such ability should be included in an undergraduate program. Second, the precision of thought developed in courses in mathematics, the natural sciences, and logic is an aid in the development of legal analytic skills and in solving legal problems. Third, a background in the behavioral sciences aids in understanding the law as a branch of the social sciences. Finally, the humanities-history, literature, philosophy-are desirable, for law is as much a branch of the humanities as it is a social science.
