Paralegal Experience and Law School Applicants

Before putting time and money into a law degree, it helps to know what you are getting into. Taking law-related classes, volunteering with legal organizations on campus or in a community, attending information sessions with prelaw advisers and law school admissions officers, and asking lawyers within your extended network about their careers can help you choose a legal career path. However, the confidential and client-focused nature of most legal work makes it hard to get a direct look at the day-to-day work that lawyers do. One of the only ways to gain direct experience in a legal workplace is by working in a law office as a paralegal.
Working as a paralegal can provide many benefits specific to law school applicants, including: Building relevant skills; A personal statement topic; A strong recommendation letter; Legal networking opportunities; and Subsidized LSAT prep or tuition reimbursement.
