Advice to future lawyers
Is law school right for me?
“You need to have a clear vision of where you want your career to take you, and make sure law school is a necessary step in that direction. A lot of people enter law school after their undergraduate studies because they don't know what they want to do with the rest of their lives. Going to law school is stressful and extremely expensive, so it's important to have a plan in place for what you want your career to be like when you finally graduate.”
Criminal defense lawyer, Houston
“Law school is a different world. You learn how to read differently, speak differently, and think differently. Law school may be unlike anything you have ever experienced, but you are not alone; you’re surrounded by hundreds of people who have stood exactly where you’re standing during your first year of law school.”
Tragos, Sartes & Tragos
School, internship & etiquette
“When interning, there is truly no such thing as a dumb question. Listen, observe, ask questions, and make the most out of your internship! Stay out of office politics, keep your relationships professional, and make sure to send everyone you worked with a thank you card at the end of your internship. Keeping those contacts will be important for the job application process you’ll go through after your second year of law school.”
Lorenzo & Lorenzo
"Get serious about reading, and don’t get behind on reading assignments. Especially in your first year. Reading and briefing cases effectively and efficiently is a skill that takes time to develop. If you don’t master that skill during your first year you will be in trouble as the complexity of your studies increases throughout your second and third years."
