Doesnt matter at all. Unlike Medical school, Law school doesnt require a specific major or courses. With that being said, take whatever you want. Undergraduate "law" courses really dont matter to the admissions people.

Just work hard and prepare for the LSAT.

Are you sure you're going to have the pre-req's/aptitude for an MPH program? It's pretty quantitatively focused as I understand it. Everyone I know going into one has a hard science background.

Yes, In fact, I started off as a Chemistry major, so even though I switched majors, I am hoping to get a Chemistry minor or something along those lines.

Also I checked the requirements for the JD/MPH programs, most want at least one biological science class. So Im taking two, Anatomy 1 and 2. They also want a Statistics class, which I plan taking as well. Chemistry was fun...then came Organic Chemistry, and thats a completely different story.
