Students who want to take law-related courses, either to explore their interest in law or as preparation for law school, often take one or more of the following:

  • Constitutional Law
  • Business Law
  • Law and Economics
  • Environmental Politics and Policy
  • Logic
  • Rhetoric

Luther also has an active Mock Trial team, which competes from the middle of the fall semester to early in the spring semester.

Even when considering the LSAT, the surest preparation for law school is to major in an area one enjoys and take intellectually challenging courses from many disciplines. Look for courses that will sharpen:

  • reading comprehension
  • writing
  • analytical skills

Most important, to quote the American Bar Association statement again, “taking difficult courses from demanding instructors is the best generic preparation for legal education.”
