Folks often assume that there is some magical undergrad major that will open up every law school admissions door to which they’d like access. These people are sorely mistaken. There is no “best” major for getting into law school. Every curriculum for every major is different at every undergraduate institution, giving admissions officers no baseline by which to judge the quality of your major.
What law school admissions officers are looking for is analytical aptitude. Nearly every undergraduate major (and indeed, college in general) involves using and honing one’s analytical ability to some degree. Being an English major does not mean you’ll have a leg up on writing legal briefs. If anything, the florid prose you’ll use in English classes will work to your detriment in law school.
