Choosing Courses for Next Semester?

There are no specific classes that you need to take before applying to law school.  However, the American Bar Association does recommend using undergraduate coursework in combination with extracurricular experiences to acquire certain skills and knowledge that can help prepare you for law school.  The Center for Pre-Law Advising's Coursework Guide highlights the recommended skill sets/broad bodies of knowledge identified by the ABA and provides examples of UW-Madison coursework that could aid you in preparing for law school.  Keep in mind that none of the courses suggested in the guide are required.
