7 hours ago How to Decide Whether to Work During Law School Law

1. Prepare yourself, your family and your employer. You will not have much free time once school starts. If you coach youth sports or lead a book club, you may find that one or more of your extra duties has to take a back seat for a few years.
2. Get your schedule organized. Some students think that they will go to school two to three nights a week and then read a bit over the weekend, leaving most else in their life unchanged.
3. Meet with your professors. Being a part-time student doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of the entire law school experience. Connecting with the faculty allows you to learn the material on a deeper level and explore your interests.
4. Give yourself breaks. Recognize that burnout, if reasonable planning and adjustments are not put in place, may occur and that you may not be the perfect student, parent, partner or housekeeper for a couple of years.
5. Keep your exercise routine. While you may not think you have enough time for exercise, it’s important to keep your body active, as it helps with stress and keeping your mind healthy.
6. Communicate with your employer. While your family may understand, your boss may not be as flexible. Be strategic about your approach to how you balance work, school and family.
7. Reach out to your classmates. While you may want to just focus on your own studies, connecting with your classmates is definitely an important part of going to law school.
8. Don’t give up. Remember that law school requires a significant amount of complex and time-consuming work. As you progress through your program, you may find that you read more efficiently and digest the material without having to read a case six times.

1. Financial status. The cost of law school and student loans are a concern for most law school applicants. On average, public law schools cost approximately $25,000 per year to attend.
2. Time availability. How urgently do you want to become a lawyer? For people who can’t wait to earn the title “Esquire,” the shortest amount of education time is typically three years.
3. School prestige. Though a university’s level of “prestige” is mostly subjective, it’s still a factor to some students. Some law school candidates have their hearts set on the Ivy League or a school that ranks in the top 10 of US News & World Report.
4. Internship experience. One of the most important aspects of a full-time law school academic year is that summers are left open for internships.
5. Admissions requirements. A big consideration when it comes to comparing full-time or part-time law school programs is the admissions criteria.
6. Social life. Having an active social life in law school may be a bit of an unrealistic expectation. Nevertheless, there are social events to enjoy and plenty of opportunities to connect with your peers.
7. Motives for attending law school. For many of the students considering a part-time law degree, the transition to becoming a criminal defense lawyer or personal injury attorney is far from their minds.
8. Extracurricular activities. Lastly, if you’re working and need to attend law school part-time, you probably don’t have the time to pursue the time-consuming extracurricular activities that employers love to see.

1. Ask family for financial help. This can be a touchy subject as your family may or may not be in a position to help. Additionally, you’re probably going to law school with the goal of becoming a functioning independent adult and you may not want to burden your family with requests for money.
2. Work a part time or a full time job. Prior to 2014, the ABA encouraged law students to spend no more than 20 hours a week working. Then, they realized that law students were drowning in debt and they dropped the requirement.
3. Scholarships and grants. Earning a scholarship or grant to go to law school is a big deal. This is probably not a new idea to you. For most law students, the competing factors here are whether you should go to a higher-ranked school (and pay full price) or go to a lower ranked school (and receive financial assistance).
4. Consider a public law school. The main difference between a public and private law school is in the funding. Public schools receive funding from the government while private law schools receive funding from private donors.
5. Take out student loans. It is very likely that you will have to take out a student loan in order to cover the rest of your law school expenses that cannot be covered by all the other efforts to raise money.

1. Earn scholarships and grants. You don’t have to repay scholarships and grants, making them the best option to pay for law school — if you qualify. Most law school scholarships and grants come from the schools themselves and are based on an applicant’s merit, e.g., their LSAT scores.
2. Work part-time. Law students can earn federal work-study funds by working part time. Since you must earn work-study funds, you can’t use this money for upfront tuition costs.
3. Use military financial aid. The military can help you pay for law school in a couple of ways: If you’ve finished your service. Law schools that participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program provide additional funding to veterans, or their children, who are eligible for the Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits.
4. Take out student loans. Most students turn to student loans to cover the cost of law school, and federal and private options are available. Law graduates with debt graduate owing an average of $145,000, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, so borrow wisely.

1. Create a solid study schedule. At the beginning of the semester, sit down and create a weekly schedule for yourself, figuring out where you will allow time for preparing for class, completing assignments for classes such as Legal Research & Writing, and giving yourself a chance to relax!
2. Get involved! When your free time is sparse, one of the first things to get cut from your to do list is probably going to be social events. Not only will it be a good mental break for you to get out and socialize with your peers and the legal community, but there are also academic and career benefits to mingling!
3. Stay organized! If you have multiple time-consuming commitments on your plate in addition to law school, things are bound to slip through the cracks if you aren’t organized!
4. Set aside time to relax. Even though you will be plenty busy with all of your commitments, it is important to consider your mental health and set aside time to relax and do things for yourself.
5. Use your time efficiently. With so many things on your weekly schedule, one way to try to get them all done is to use your time efficiently and multi-task!

2. How much is law school? In an article dated March 12, 2019, USNews.com states: “The average annual tuition and fees at private law schools in the 2018-2019 academic year – $49,095 – was around $8,400 higher than the average annual out-of-state tuition and fees at public law schools.
3. Do I need to take any prerequisites before I apply to law school? There are no prerequisite classes or majors to qualify for law school. You must complete or be in the process of completing your baccalaureate (college bachelor) degree.
4. Are there any entrance exams required for law school? The most common entrance exam for law school is the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). However, some schools now accept the GRE in lieu of the LSAT.
5. How much does it cost to apply to law school? Yes, law school is challenging, but it is also fun. If you didn’t like reading cases and learning how to write a legal memo, I don’t think you would be in law school.
6. What should I be looking for in a law school? You should be looking for a good fit for you. This includes the atmosphere of the law school, the location, and the price.
7. What do law schools look for in an applicant? Law schools look first and foremost for indications of strong academic ability. This is typically displayed through your undergraduate GPA or LSAT/GRE score.

1. Become a Para Legal Volunteer. As you enter law school, the Legal Services Authority might try to recruit the freshers into their Para Legal Volunteer (PLV) Program.
2. Work-from-Home Internships (moving from free to paid assignments) As law students, you have to write. It’s better to take up this activity at the earliest and gear up for the future.
3. Legal Blogging/ Content Writing. I can’t possibly stress enough how many times I have been told that writing is what counts. Reading lets you gain knowledge, listening further adds to the pool, but writing is necessary to fortify that knowledge.
4. Participating in Various Competitions. It is better to start participating in competitions early on in your student life. The level of confidence and professionalism built with it, and the links made, are priceless.
5. Maintaining a Freelancer Profile. Get registered on LinkedIn, Freelancer.com and any other site that catches your fancy. The freelancing websites are updated with an inhuman amount of work, that doesn’t always require a lawyer to do.
6. Representing Parties in Court. This might seem puzzling, but yes, you can represent other parties in specific courts even if you are not a registered advocate.
7. Preparing case briefs. Finding a busy lawyer that you are comfortable with for work, and making them value you enough to pay you is the only ordeal in this line of business.
8. Ghost-writing books. Ghostwriting is when you write for someone else, and it ends up as their work. They will provide you with the insights and their take on what the content should be like.
