you can study whatever you want undergrad, but most preferably something that develops communications skills and such...

My uncle studied Philosophy and ended up very successful at Columbia Law School (graduated second in his class). Other schools offer such courses as "Jurisprudence" so that might help.

what about communications, or semiotics?

Avoid communications if you want to go to law school. One (UT Austin I believe) explicitly said that they would view that major as not being rigorous enough.
Law schools do accept people from almost every major. You need one that develops writing, analytical thinking, and communication skills (and probably in that order). Engineering, philosophy, and classics majors tend to be the most successful in law school.
The most common majors of people in law school are things like history, poli sci, and English.
When you get to college, talk to a pre-law advisor, who will be able to go into more detail on appropriate courses.

communications is a good major if you take it in a school that knows how to teach it...a good communications program emphasizes the analytical thinking, communication skills, clear and condensed writing that is need for law school

Il|matics, what schools would you recommend? I have been looking at poli sci and english too but I like communications better, it just seems more interesting
what about cornell or berkeley?
