I have decided to apply to law school in 4 years.

Postby slippunches » Mon May 30, 2011 3:59 pm

I have decided to work for 4 years to save up some money and then apply to law school. I plan to practice IP Law in the software sector since I was a computer science major. What steps should I take to prepare myself and when should I start studying for the LSAT? I would like to start studying for the LSAT little by little instead of cramming for it. Thanks in advance for the advice.

The LSAT is a skills test not a information test like the MCAT. So little by little isn't the best idea. 6 months is the longest you should study, but 3 is probably the ideal amount.

I'd go to the LSAT forum on this website and read the Pithypike method thread. It's a good self study plan.

CR. If you study fairly hard, I dunno what you'd do past month 3. The LSAT's cake if you've been through engineering and have more than rudimentary English skills.
