Creating Your Action Plan

The path to law school is not linear. Students who are successful in law school and become accomplished professionals come from many walks of life and educational backgrounds. There is no "right" way to go to law school. Some students enter law school immediately after receiving their undergraduate degree, and others prefer to enroll at a later time. It is not "bad" to take some time off for yourself, pursue another degree, or even work before matriculating into law school. Whatever path best suits your needs is the one for you!

We encourage you to pursue an area of study that interests and challenges you, while developing skills like critical thinking that will aid you in law school.
Here you will find a guideline that will provide you with the steps to law school. If at any time throughout this process you have a question, please email us! 


Be aware that law schools will not only be interested in your academics and achievements but also your character. Be careful what you post on social media, and Google yourself to see what is posted about you.
