The Application

Research is key, and becoming familiar with the parts of the application is essential.

Who should I ask to give me letters of recommendation?

Don’t make this common mistake.

Should I disclose any personal legal issues on my application?

Don’t abandon the idea of going to law school because of personal legal issues from your past.
