Agreed.hawaii wrote:It can be anything you want it to be. I would maybe start by just sitting down and thinking about what you want the admissions committee to know about you. After you have a few things listed, think about experiences in your life that have made a difference in some way. A typical topic is usually dicussing what led you to your interest in going to law school. There is a whole topic thread with sample personal statements that you can read through to take a look at the types of things other people have written. I hope this helped. Good luck!
