What is the best law school to attend? What should you study in college and what classes will give you a good start for an attorney career?
With so much information out there, it can be difficult deciding where to start. You’ve got plenty of options: law schools, internships and clerkships, bar exam preparation courses and more. The legal industry is diverse – from small boutique shops all the way up through large corporate affairs departments – so finding something that suits your personality can feel like a daunting task at first glance. But with some careful research of your own as well as interviews with people who have been down similar paths before you, figuring out which path to take won’t be too difficult.
Once you’ve figured out what kind of lawyer or legal analyst that might make you into (whether this means going into government relations or tax work), don’t forget about interviewing prospective employers during job fairs! These days getting a job isn’t necessarily about networking on LinkedIn; it’s about being seen by those hiring eyes in person, presenting yourself professionally while showing off some impressive skills on paper as well if possible.
