All the advice needed to successfully apply and excel in law school and beyond.

International law students have access to programs that are more efficient and economical than the regular J.D. program. This includes many options for LL.M. programs and an Advanced Standing 2-Year J.D.
Whether you were a “regular” at your undergraduate library or you never set foot inside the building for four years, you will need to use the law library as a law student, so how can you make the most of your time there? 
It depends, though the most common degree (Juris Doctor) takes three years to complete. If you’re thinking “law school,” you’re probably thinking J.D.
Excellent letters of recommendation stem from good relationships. Good relationships experience growth, change, and shared experiences. For law school, strong academic letters of recommendation are crucial in the application process. 
Applying to law school is an exciting step in your life, but it can also be a long and stressful process. All applicants hope to be admitted to their preferred school, but sometimes the process can take an unexpected turn if you are placed on the waitlist.
