Can a criminal justice degree help you get into law school?

Yes. Students may pursue an undergraduate degree in criminal justice as a solid educational foundation to help them prepare to apply for law school.

The American Bar Association (ABA) does not make any specific recommendation for undergraduate majors, noting that students are accepted to law school from a wide variety of academic disciplines.

Herzing University also offers legal studies programs that can help prepare students to work in different areas of law. Some students use this as a first step toward law school, be it in the near future or a few years down the road.
