These days, many schools have both a BA and a BS econ major with the BS requiring calc and basic accounting and stuff while the BA doesnt(although your course selection may be limited if you dont take calc). Personally, I took more math heavy classes than most people in the BA program and I only took about 3-4 somewhat math heavy courses. Even still, the only calc I really used was some profit maximization stuff using rates of change, taking derivatives for different things, and a few things regarding building better models in econometrics. Overall, I honestly dont even know how to do much calc anymore(not that I knew a huge amount in the first place). Of course, I didnt go to MIT or Caltech.
even if you do a whole bunch of math heavy stuff, then you're probably gonna come out with something that's heavy on econometrics, which means you're likely to be writing research papers. if you can write a research paper, you can write a legal paper. no grades yet to confirm my hypothesis, but i'm pretty confident nonetheless.
