I am a high school student interested in law. My dream job is being a corporate lawyer.
I’ve read other threads, and I know that I should be focusing on my undergraduate years and not law school. I’m aware of this. But I had some questions that I hope can be answered;
I know for Ivy Leagues, you should have a “spike” developed in high school for your desired major. Should my “spike” be extracurriculars related to my major (Econ/Politics) or should they be related to my interest in Law? Which would be more effective in the application process?
What are some extra curricular ideas I can do as a student interested in law? I know legal internships are next to impossible for undergrad students, let alone high schoolers, but I know I’d be able to secure one through one of my connections. Would this suffice as an impressive extra curricular?
What are the best majors for corporate lawyers? I’ve read through these before and I know there’s no “perfect” major, but are there some that benefit me more than others? Again, I know law school is pretty flexible
I guess my biggest dilemma is deciding on my spike. Should a spike be related to my interest (law) or my desired undergrad major (econ/politics)?
