Preparing for Law School

There is no single path that best prepares an individual for academic success in law school or the practice of law. Students who are successful in law school, and who become accomplished professionals, come from many educational backgrounds and walks of life. Though the majority of law students enter law school directly after completing their undergraduate studies, many others begin their legal education later in life, and they bring to their law school education the insights and perspectives gained from those life experiences.
