One course for law school edification...
« on: December 27, 2006, 09:36:27 PM »
Hey LSDers,
So, I'm in the fortunate situation next semester of having a spare credit in my final semester. I don't need to fulfill any requirements, and I don't have any burning "I have to take xxxxx before I graduate or I'll feel unfulfilled" feelings.

The question, then--if there's one course at my liberal arts college I could take to give me any sort of more well-rounded background for law school, what would it be?

Caveats:
-No political science (I don't have the prereqs to take any courses that would be helpful)
-No linguistics or literature (I'm a major)

My thoughts included an econ intro, intro to stat, psych, philosophy ...

Any ideas?

econ could be a good idea ... I kind of wish I had taken more.  Some people say logic helps but I wasn't the biggest fan.

I'll admit, when I read that Turow thought econ was important in One L it had an impact on me. Hm.

Also, we're numbers twins. Word.
