Although there is no single major that will prepare you for a legal education, Holy Cross College has a pre-law track within the multi-disciplinary liberal studies program. Students receive a broad foundation of knowledge in business, English, history and philosophy. The pre-law track is designed to help students develop the analytical reasoning, critical thinking, and written communication skills necessary to succeed in law school and in the legal profession. Your pre-law advisor will guide you in preparing for the law school admission process and helping you select the best law school for you.
