Pre-Law (Business)  

While law schools do not prescribe any rigid undergraduate curriculum, a substantial number of prelaw students choose one of the business fields of study as their major for the baccalaureate degree. You might wish to combine the business prelaw major with one of the other majors in the College of Business if the profession of law is your ultimate career goal.

The business prelaw major recognizes the business and economic emphasis of the practice of law and also provides the breadth of training and philosophical background that is conducive to success in law school.
