Is a history background necessary for the study of law? Do I have to be good at maths?

Not necessarily.

Some of what you study at law school will necessarily involve a study of Bhutan’s history, including its philosophy and its Buddhist traditions. There will be a mandatory course on economics to help broaden your maths background. Some parts of law do involve maths, maybe not complex calculus, but you do want the maths to add up for your client’s business contracts.

So if you absolutely HATE history and maths, you might want to think twice about whether law school is the right fit for you.
