I would have to disagree with the other posters. Majors such as Pre-law, criminal justice, Art, etc are considered hokey by most Admissions committees. It seems this is the case b/c these programs are generally considered weak across the board (though it would be hard to quantify the negative effect this has on your chances). It would be similar to someone majoring in Physical education, though not quite as bad as that. Majors that are considered law-friendly are history, economics, philosophy, english, etc. While majoring in art might help you in patent law, it is unlikely (given that your odds of entering any area of law are equal) that you will do so. I think a general problem with majors like Art, Physical education,etc, is that your ability to think/write rationally is not exercised to the extent that other liberal arts programs (like philosophy) provide. If you were going to a general liberal arts college instead of an Art Academy I would suggest a double major, but I suppose that is not possible in your case. Fortunately, the LSAT is by far the most important factor for getting into law school. If you can pull off a good LSAT score and a good GPA, the people evaluating your file will likely give your art program the benefit of the doubt.
