Has anyone here majored in Psychology and followed a career in law? Did you find your academic skills to be transferrable between these two areas?

As a Psychology major, we are taught about behavior and gather insightful information about human interactions. When someone walks into a lawyer’s office, chances are, they’re stressed and upset. I think in any profession the ability to interact well with others, especially in times of crises is very important.

I'm not a psychology major and I'm not a law student yet; however, I've been researching legal careers and found that law school tends to favor those who think logically, write well, and are able to read large volumes of content. Besides all those learnable skills, generally there isn't a major that's "wrong" for law school. Ultimately from what I've read, generally any skill set that you need to be a good undergraduate student will be useful in law school and the rest everyone figures out once they get there.
