We spoke to Jose Ivan Roman, Assistant Director of Admissions at Boston Law School; Kelly Shull Cannon, Partner at Houser, Newman, Besley Law Firm; and Kris Tina Carlston, Lawyer and Pre-Law Advisor at Brigham Young University. Our experts discussed the qualities and skill sets it takes to succeed in the law school classroom and the questions to ask yourself before entering into the financial and time commitments of law school. Though Jose Ivan Roman doesn’t believe a specific personality is made for law school, all three of our experts believe there are specific skill-sets needed to succeed. They mentioned drive and determination, along with analytical, writing, reading, and public speaking skills as being necessary for a successful law school student.
