Choosing a Law School


Thursday, September 30, 2021, 12:30pm to 1:30pm



Congratulations, you’ve decided to go to law school! Now it’s time to think about where to go. With so many schools to choose from, this session will guide you through a list of factors to consider—such as a school’s bar passage rate, job placement rate, starting salaries, and scholarship opportunities—as you narrow down your list of schools and determine the ones that meet your needs. It will also help you learn where to access data on law school costs, employment outcomes, and academic fit, and will walk you through two AccessLex Institute tools that can help you take a data-based approach to finding the law schools that best fit what you want and need in your law school experience.


This AccessLex event is co-sponsored by the pre-law advising offices of the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Yale University.
