Speaking as a lawyer myself, here's what I found most valuable: Debate team and English. A lawyer also needs a good grasp of history and our U.S. Constitution and an appreciation of how our government and court system work.A lawyer does a lot of writing and must understand how to debate effectively in a courtroom.  That said, I also think a good grounding in math is important, especially if you decide to be a lawyer specializing in Estates and Trusts or corporate law.  If you are interested in patent and copyright law, a degree in college in the sciences, especially engineering, is a fine asset because patent attorneys have to pass a special patent bar exam in addition to the one that entitles them to practice law. They need to understand the drawings that accompany a patent application. New fields in patent law that require a science degree. These include genetics and chemistry.
