Would a Bachelor in business administration be of any help in going to law school to study criminal law.
I am doing a BBA, but I want to be a criminal law professor.
I would think a bachelor of business administration would help you with going to law school. This would make you much more well rounded and in a business admin program you are forced to think about organizations and businesses large and small on how they work, function, fail and succeed. You learn about corporate and business law, you study accounting. International business. Economics. Statistics. All things that will help you think more critically when going to law school. Some online law schools such as Concord Law School accept students with bachelor degrees in many different areas.
While many law schools do prefer their students to have earned a bachelor's degree that is based on a pre-law curriculum, it is not always a requirement. Many law schools see studies in various areas as a plus.
However, with that said I would suggest you do is contact the law schools that you are considering applying to, and ask them which undergraduate degree you will be required to earn in order to qualify for their law program.
