As both law schools and the American Bar Association point out, no set curriculum prepares one for law school, and studies show that there is no correlation between academic major and success in law school. Extremely successful legal careers have been launched by students from a wide variety of academic majors. Wooster graduates with majors ranging from history, philosophy, and political science to communication, biology, and economics have been successful in law school. What law schools look for is whether a student's course of study was a rigorous academic experience that demonstrates the necessary skills and intellectual ability to pursue a legal education. In addition, since legal work regulates human activity and shapes our institutions, one must develop a keen understanding of human values and human nature. The curriculum at Wooster is designed to develop the ability to research and analyze problems and to communicate effectively.
Students might find the following courses helpful in preparation for law school. Other courses in Wooster's curriculum also provide valuable skills, and none of the following are required.
