Work Experience

Postby lurksoh4rd » Wed Apr 19, 2017 1:15 am

Following this year's acceptance cycle, it's obvious that KJD can hurt you. Considering the large amount of law school applicants with social sciences and humanities etc backgrounds, what kind of work experience do applicants from these disciplines have?

The type of work experience you have is much less important than the fact that you've taken at least a year to work and live in the world outside of academia. So just do a job that interests you. Or failing that, find a hobby/volunteer opportunity that interests you, and find a job that lets you pay the bills.

I think that also getting a job in the legal field you're interested in pursing post law school would be a good measure of whether it's something you want to actually do.
