1. Harvard University. Whether you grew up protecting your precious inventions from prying siblings or protesting deforestation in your neighborhood, the Harvard College Law Society has you covered.
2. University of Chicago. Do law students really rip pages out of required library books to throw their classmates under the bus? The U of Chicago’s Cafe Careers initiative lets undergraduates get answers by sharing coffee with grad students for career advice and mentoring.
3. New York University. NYU students can scope out their intended law careers through a staggering array of law-related courses ranging from Hospitality and Tourism Law to Nonprofit Law.
4. University of California, Los Angeles. Especially for aspiring litigators, developing a little competitiveness sounds like a good idea. At UCLA, law-focused students are crushing it.
5. Duke University. You’ve got a few years to wait before raking in a lawyers salary, but that doesn’t stop you from wanting to network over food. Enter the FLUNCH Program, which pays for students to treat their professors to lunch or dinner.

1. Political Science. Admitted Students: 9,612. Average LSAT Score: 158.3. So much of politics is high-quality legislation that it is no wonder this field tops our list of most popular majors for law school students.
2. Psychology. Admitted Students: 2,960. Average LSAT Score: 152.6. Psychology is the third social science to make an appearance on this list, and that is no surprise.
3. Miscellaneous. Admitted Students: 2,904. Average LSAT: 151.2. This category is a catch-all for niche majors not commonly represented among law school applicants.
4. History. Admitted Students: 2,657. Average LSAT Score: 156.2. Understanding the past is critical for interpreting law for two reasons. First, it establishes precedent, and knowing how legal cases have been resolved in the past is central to our understanding of how to decide current cases.
5. English. Admitted Students: 2,564. Average LSAT Score: 155.3. English is another famous choice for pre-law students, since so much reading and writing is required to perform well in this field.
6. Economics. Admitted Students: 2,373. Average LSAT Score: 158.9. Economics offers the perfect blend of quantitative and qualitative experience. Additionally, this field prepares you to be an effective lawmaker and advocate for sound monetary policy.
7. Criminal Justice. Admitted Students: 2,220. Average LSAT Score: 145.9. If you love to be hands-on with the justice system, this may be the major for you. No field of study gives you more exposure to law prior to law school.
8. Philosophy. Admitted Students: 1,858. Average LSAT Score: 157.5. Traditionally, philosophy is considered the ultimate pre-law major. In this field, you wrestle deeply with logic and reasoning as you consider questions about knowledge, existence, and other fundamental concepts.
9. Arts & Humanities. Admitted Students: 1,496. Average LSAT Score: 154.2. This group of majors tends to be fairly writing-heavy and attracts students with the focus to spend hours reading.
10. Sociology. Students admitted to law school from this major last year: 1,327. Average LSAT score of admitted students (out of 180): 150.7. Sociology majors have to be comfortable scrutinizing data and writing long papers.
