Kaitlynn’s Answer

Hi Lydia,

When I was in high school I actually got the opportunity to take law studies, with AP government, along with civics in 7th grade. All these classes made me see the changes that the legal world needed and how I wanted to contribute. It really made me see the aspects of debating, and researching that I enjoyed to which lead me down my path of law.

Hope this helped!

Hi Lydia,
If your school offers forensics, that would be an interesting class to take! Other classes include AP Government, AP Comparative Gov, and/or AP US History. Hope this helped!

Gregg’s Answer

Hi Lydia,

History and government classes were what pointed me to law. Learning about how the Supreme Court desegregated schools, how Congress used the civil rights act expanded rights for people previously denied them, and how the three branches of government interacted always peaked my interest the most. They also provided some of the basics for concepts you will later learn in law school.

Good luck!

Gregg

Jonathan’s Answer

I wanted to be a doctor coming out of high school. I had an interest in politics, taxation, wealth generation, and economics. Law was the backup, if all else fails career option for me. However, having gone to top schools before going to law school really helped. Economics helped too because economics is a study of something where there are all kinds of possibilities that can happen and so that helped when I took a law school exam. I took a law school like solving a math problem so that helped.
