Are you considering law school? This class will help you assess whether a career in law is right for you and how to navigate the application process.

In the early part of the class, you will assess your strengths, values and skills. You will learn how your unique interests and strengths fit within the field of law. You will explore the different areas of legal studies and learn all that you can do with a JD degree. Later in the class, you will evaluate which activities and experiences might be beneficial for a pre-law student and how to present yourself as a competitive applicant.  We will often have guest speakers in class to discuss different law careers and helpful tips for the application process.

Assignments will include informational interviews, writing a personal statement, and compiling a law school resume.
