Liberal Studies.  I had to take a certain amount of upper level credits in each of 5 areas of study.

Professor Kennedy! I loved your class!

accounting major...the tax accounting courses at my school are taught by two tax lawyers (both with LLM's from NYU) and I definitely feel like I am getting a good mix of business and law.  One of them actually stresses the importance of the use of the Socratic method (unlike most teachers here in wussy Seattle).

Other business courses give you a sense of what you need to do to succeed in the workplace and especially the entrepreneurial side if you are going to eventually practice by yourself.  I do wish I was a little more well rounded but definitely feel advantaged.
