Law School? - April 30th 2010, 05:58 AM

So right now I am a Sophomore at a private college, which I just transferred to, and I have my associates degree from my last college, which I graduated from, however I'm debating going to law school after I get my BA. Has anyone ever been to law school, thought about law school, or know anything about it that might be helpful for me?

I'm considering law school as a possible option and taking a 2nd year law course this summer. I know there are at least 2 users here I know of who said they went to law school so they can be helpful but I cant be of much help probably. One of my professors has his LLB (lawyer) so if there's a question in specific you have, then I may be able to help.

I know several people doing Law and only one of them wishes to continue studying to be a barrister or solicitor.

Law is one of the toughest courses out there and a lot of it is autonomous. You should probably manage in that respect after your BA. Its a lot of sitting down and learning off-by-heart various rules and such.

In Ireland once you have a degree thats at least a 2:1, you can apply for a part time 2 year course to get a Law degree equivalent to the 4 year course. Then sit the entrance exam for King College to one year study (along with the normal Law students) and upon commencement of that you're admitted to the bar.

I suggest you look to see if your country has an accelerated course.

One of my friends is actually in law school right now, and she absolutely loves it, and also loves the possibilities she has from it. So if its something that you want to do, then you should definitely follow what you want.
