A: There are many good undergrad majors for law school. It's difficult to recommend one over another. It comes down to a personal decision about one's interests. If the major is something the person could excel in and get good grades in, that would be valuable - law schools look at undergrad grades. Also look into prep courses for the LSAT. Together with grades, that's another important factor. There are many resources on this online, and you could reach out to counselors and academic advisors who have strong insights in this area. Good luck
