Guided Pathways: Pre-Law

History is a superb foundation for the study of law, because legal reasoning depends fundamentally on historical reasoning. Law schools look favorably on a history major because the critical thinking, research, and writing skills that are taught in history classes are so similar to the skills that are required for the study of law.  Students on this track will focus on the development of legal codes and political systems and will be especially well prepared for the demands of law school.
