Students save their elective hours to use in the first year of law school and may choose any major within the college as their undergraduate major.  All business majors are required to take at least one course in business law, with an option to take more. Students can also earn a concentration in business law, strengthening their preparation and credentials for law school.  If accepted into Drake University Law School, students should finish the 124 hour graduation requirement for their undergraduate degree during the first year of law school.
