DENNIS’s Answer

Hi Graciela: The answer depends on where you are in school now. Lawyers come in all sizes and shapes! Some are great in math some in writing some in a variety of things. I am a semi-retired trial lawyer from NYC. I tried many construction cases with serious injuries. I had to learn all sorts of things about construction and learn a ton of medical problems so I could explain them to juries. Most lawyers, however, stay in offices all the time. (Trials are very stressful) So if you want to write Appeals, - take writing classes. If you want to be a constitutional rights lawyer, debate and writing classes. I know a bunch of lawyers who work for drug companies (and make a great living) then chemestry and science courses with writing. While writing is a central theme here, the key is you finding your interest and pursue that first and law will follow you! Good luck.

Jenny’s Answer

Hi Graciela! My name is Jenny and I work in commercial legal at a tech company called Twilio.

I would recommend taking writing classes. As a law student and legal professional, it’s super important to be able to think critically and write analysis in a clear, organized manner.

While other classes are more traditionally legal-focused (i.e. classes on politics/government), being an effective writer really lays a foundation for the study of any type of law.

I hope this is helpful!
