PS about specific field of law?

Postby Buggefraiche » Thu Jul 12, 2018 7:14 pm

Hi all,

I want to practice immigration law. Would it be a bad idea to use my personal statement to talk about my motivations for deciding on that field specifically and how I have prepared for it? I have heard that law schools prefer applicants to be open-minded and not come in with preconceived ideas of what their speciality would be. Is there a chance it would hurt me to focus on this area being my passion? I feel that it is such a massive part of who I am (after all, it is my entire reason for applying to law school) that it would be difficult and maybe self-sabotaging to ignore it.

Any thoughts and input are appreciated.
