Choosing the Right Law School

Just like choosing your undergraduate school, you should do your homework before starting your search for a law school.

How do I know which law school will be right for me?

You will need to consider a number of factors to select the school that is best suited for you.

Attend an LSAC Law School Forum

Law School Forums are held every year in cities throughout the country. These events allow you to meet reps from more than 150 law schools in one place and to attend workshops on the LSAT, the admission process, financing law school, and the importance of diversity to law schools.

Hear from Law Students

Patricia Guzman decided to pursue a law degree after her experience helping homeless drug addicts in Puerto Rico. In this video, she speaks about how she selected and applied to law school using the Internet and law school websites.

Samantha Lyons wanted to attend a law school that was close to her family. She talks about the many activities and groups she is involved with at law school.
