Is law school right for me?
This week’s podcast helps answer the question “Is Law School Right For Me?” 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.
All three of our experts believe there are specific skill-sets needed to succeed in law school including drive and determination, plus analytical, writing, reading, and public speaking skills. In addition, there are many factors to consider before you make the decision to attend law school. Roman comments on the intellectual toughness of the program, Carlston mentions that a law degree doesn’t guarantee large salaries but could come with large debt, and Cannon speaks on the agility you must have to be a successful candidate.
If you still aren’t sure law school is the best option for you – this podcast will give you some great insight.
