Right now, 23 sounds old, 26 sounds ancient and 30+ sounds prehistoric.
You will be younger than average at almost all law schools. Also you will discover that where you are at in life becomes much less directly tied to age after about 22. By that point everyone is pretty much as fully developed psychologically as they are going to get and where you fit in socially has much more to do with what you are doing than how old you are. Physically there is also pretty much no difference between 23 and 30. For the most part a 28 year old law student and a 23 year old law student would be pretty indistinguishable if you didn't inquire as to their age and background.
