Taking law school courses before applying to law school

Postby byngcui » Tue Jan 03, 2017 12:28 pm

I am currently coterming my master's along with my bachelor's and I have some credits left over after completing the core requirements. This made me wonder if I should take some law school courses before I graduate. The law school at my institution allows cross registration for undergrads and non-law graduate students, so the option is definitely viable. The question is whether it would be worth it to do so. My game plan is to take a couple law school courses and do well in them, hopefully enough for the professor to remember who I am, and get letter of recommendations from those professors.

Does this sound like a doable plan? The law school courses that I am pondering to take are both electives and I am hoping that 2Ls and 3Ls would give me some breathing room. Also, I am also curious whether LORs from law school professors could affect my chances of getting into T14 law schools.

Any input will be much appreciated. Thanks.

It's not worth the effort of crossing campus unless you're interested in the courses on their own merits.
