Christopher M.’s Answer
Very good question and I hope that my perspective is helpful to you.
About half of students attending law school are between the ages of 22-24 according to LSAC, meaning they're likely attending law school immediately after completing their undergraduate program. I don't think that there is a correct or incorrect path. I think that it is entirely dependent on your life and your goals.
I sat for my LSAT or applied to law school two years after completing my undergraduate program. I consider those two years invaluable and I believe that the perspective I gained in those two years allowed me to excel in my studies. I also had classmates who were in their thirties and hadn't stepped foot in a classroom for over a decade.
I recommend reflecting on your interests and goals (both professional and personal) rather than on which path is traditional. I wish that I could be more specific but it really is dependent on where you are now (not geographically) and where you want to be (again, not geographically).
