While no specific major is expected of law school applicants by admission committees, a strong background in the liberal arts is recommended.

It is best for students to select a major in a field that interests them. Regis’ Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities program, for example, provides the flexibility of course offerings to help students customize their academic experience based on their future career goals.
