For those planning to attend law school, there is no particular major required.  Typically these students study a variety of subjects including, but not limited to, political science, criminal justice, philosophy, history, English, and economics.  Law schools look at a variety of criteria in admitting new law students.  Some of the most important criteria are the undergraduate grade point average (GPA) and scores on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).
