How to Pay for Law School

Alright, strap in. Today we’re going to talk about how to pay for law school. Waitwait, come back. Get a fortifying beverage, because we need to talk.

Law school isn’t going to pay for itself. So how are we, the prospective law students, supposed to deal with the terrifying dollar signs that float ominously in the corners of rooms, casting cold shadows and humming with portents of financial doom (or is that just me…)? Let’s, uh … let’s look at some options.

Making Your Last Year of College Count

Calling all college seniors! It’s now mid-August and the final year of school is approaching, especially for those on semester schedules. And this raises the age-old question: what’s life like after college? To all the prospective lawyers out there, you’ll know the answer already … more college (in the form of law school)!

So what needs to be done to get there? Plenty, and now is the time to get started, especially if you’re looking to apply this admissions cycle (fall/winter).

Law School Dispatches: Where You Live Matters

Law students will share different opinions about the best way to prepare for law school in the summer before your first year (whether it’s reading up on how to take law school exams, or perfecting that summer tan and putting off work for as long as possible). As a law student about to enter my 2L year, I’ve been giving advice to several incoming law students that has little to do with the academics of law school, but probably matters a great deal to a student’s performance and general well-being over the three years of a law school program. That topic is law student housing.

Dispatches from Law School: Choosing Your Study Group

Study groups are probably one aspect of law school you didn’t even know you needed to worry about (and you shouldn’t worry), but reflecting on my 1L year so far, I’ve had a great study group experience that I attribute to being very lucky, rather than to being prepared. I need to leave the bigger questions about “finding your law school community” and “acing law school exams” for another day (whenever I master those for myself), but I nonetheless have a fresh perspective on study groups to share with all the future 1L’s.

Another Law School May Be Closing Its Doors

Things are looking very dire for the students of Western State College of Law at Argosy University. As if its name could afford to be any longer, this school will probably be referred to as “the Beleaguered Western State College of Law at Argosy University” whenever it’s brought up this year.
