20 Top U.S. Universities Sending Students to Law Schools


In the U.S. there is no pre-law degree that specifically prepares you only for law school. Students majoring in everything from music to political science apply to law school each year. These diverse majors help to create an academic environment that is unique and stimulating. International students are also able to attend law school by either applying for a three-year J.D. (Juris Doctor) or one-year LL.M. (Master of Law) degree. Although the application for each degree is different, they both provide students with knowledge of the U.S. legal system. 


For international students thinking about applying to law schools in the U.S., we've listed the top 20 universities that send the most students (international and domestic) to law schools.
