Law (academic)

While Law is a part of society the academic study of law, both as a science, that is, jurisprudence and by students preparing to be lawyers is taught in the United States at specialized postgraduate[?] law schools. In other countries the course of study is different, for example, in England, prospective lawyers simply major in law as an undergraduate, or take a special one year course in law after having majored in some other discipline.

The education of a lawyer is partly taken up with general principles of law and partly with the laws and procedures of the jurisdiction the law school is located in, that information being necessary for passing the bar in a specific jurisdiction.
