Is Law School for Me?


The law offers many attractions for those who enter the profession, including intellectual challenge, an opportunity to use one's skills to help others, and a foundation from which to pursue a wide range of professional aspirations.  Whatever your motivation for entering the legal profession, it is best to be well informed.  Learn as much as you can about the profession before you invest your life and effort in it.

A law degree need not restrict career choices. A Juris Doctorate can serve as a ticket of admission to a career in business, communications, politics, academia, not to mention nonpractitioner jobs within the profession, including those within the extensive legal products, services, and consulting industries.

The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) is the central clearinghouse for pre-law students.  The LSAC offers advice to students who are thinking about law school. You can get started here.
