BA in Law

The University of Arizona has become the first college in the nation to offer a BA in law. A Findlaw article about the program, which still requires the student to attend law school if they want to be a lawyer, is available here. A press release from the school is available here

Personally, I think it is a good idea. It may give a student some idea whether they really would like to become a lawyer. I also think that legal concepts are important in a whole host of fields where people work with lawyers as clients. I am thinking of accountants, insurance agents, real estate brokers and even labor relations professionals.
