There is no "Pre-Law Major" offered at FIU nor is any major the best preparation for law school. Political Science and International Relations are both appropriate majors if you enjoy the classes and do well academically. The Department of Politics and International Relations recognizes the interests and needs of the undergraduate Political Science major who plans to attend law school. The basic skills important to such students include how to (1) think logically, (2) read critically, and (3) write and present precisely.
These skills are developed in a number of disciplines. Beyond these basic skills, the department encourages interested majors to acquire a broad background in Political Science or International Relations rather than to select only courses that deal with public law.
In selecting electives, Political Science and International Relations majors should remember that the LSAT and law school require the ability to read and think conceptually and logically and to express oneself with clarity and precision. Whether or not a given student will benefit from a particular elective is a question best answered by the student in close consultation with an advisor. Courses in History, Philosophy, Economics, Sociology, Psychology, Math, and English will probably all give relevant skills to majors interested in pre-law. Breadth of preparation is important. Whether a particular course in logic, writing or another area is the best choice can only be answered on an individual basis.
