Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) Blue Divider Line

What should I major in to get into law school?
Blue Divider Line

Law schools do not require any specific major. IUS does not have a prelaw major. Choose a major in which you have a strong interest. That will enhance your learning, help you to be more dedicated, and most likely help you to maintain a strong grade point average
