Law School

Pre-Legal Education
Preparation of the study of law is varied.  There is no particular recommended pre-legal course of study. This is because the lawyer finds himself/herself involved with problems from all walks of life.  His/her greatest asset is the ability to read with understanding, to analyze and express himself/herself with clarity.  The adult student brings to the study of law a wide breadth of experience and education.  Success in law school, as well as, in the practice of law, depends on a large part, on your ability to apply this experience to the law.  Discipline is the cornerstone for success in the law field.  Law school requires dedication, determination and advancement of long-term memory skills.  In order to succeed in law school, on the bar examination, and as a practicing lawyer, the student must be committed to the pursuit of excellence.
