Work 20hrs/week

Postby bballfreak56 » Tue Jun 21, 2011 11:58 am

I just want to check to make sure that if you are a full time law school student you are not allowed to work more than 20 hours a week. Is this a requirement or simply a suggestion. Thank you for helping me out with any answers.

I'm a little confused by your question..are you or are your parents wanting you to work more than 20hrs/week? Even if it wasn't prohibited, and it is, that would be a horrible idea.

Yep, 20 hrs/week for a full time student is an ABA rule. And some schools have an even stricter limit on hours.
