Choose a law school that’s right for you
You’ve gotten your acceptance letters and now it’s finally time to choose a school. But how do you pick the one that’s right for you? Where you go to law school impacts your 1L experience and your legal career.
Making a decision based on some magazine’s rankings alone can be a flawed tactic. Deciding where you will attend is one of the most important decisions you will make on your journey to 1L. The reputation and ranking of each law school on your list should be considerations — but they represent only part of the equation.
Before you commit to that one law school and send off your seat deposit for your 1L year, learn how to find the best law school fit for you and your goals. From geographic location and specialized programs to campus environment and career opportunities, our panelists discuss “the entire equation” and provide rock-solid advice on what you need to consider.
