 Thinking About Law School

Find out More about Law Schools

Look widely and inquire carefully. Gather and study information on law schools. Select the law schools to which you will apply only after reviewing the admission material available from each law school on your list of possibilities.

Visit law school websites or write to law schools for their bulletins, catalogs, or other materials that include complete and current information. Consult your college prelaw advisor. Undergraduate institutions with prelaw advisors or career counselors encourage students and alumni to contact them for assistance—even if you have been out of school for a number of years.

Visit law schools. Talk with students and faculty members. Visit classes. Talk to alumni of the schools, preferably recent graduates or ones who are active in alumni affairs.

Attend a free Law School Forum. Law School Forums are excellent opportunities to talk with law school representatives from around the country in one central, urban location. For law school contact information you may visit the law school links area of this website, or you can access the ABA-LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools. The Official Guide is also available for purchase.
