How soon can I start looking into applying for law school.
I am currently attending the university for my degree in accounting and then I want to continue into Law focusing in tax law and family/immigration law. What steps do I need to take to ensure I don't delay any apps and I don't want to have a big time gap after I receive my bachelor's. #accounting #women-in-law #immigration-law #taxlaw
You don't need to wait to get started if you know this is what you want to do after you graduate.
You should research schools to find one or more that you are interested in applying to. Each school may have something different to offer. You want to choose one that you believe you can get accepted to and which also can provide you with the education you are seeking.
Once you have identified some schools, check with admissions regarding qualifications for admission. They can give you an idea as to what they seek in a qualified candidate.
You need to take the LSAT (required standardized test) in order to apply to law school. A lot of people take an LSAT prep course the summer after they graduate from college. However, many people take several years after college to work before applying to law school. I worked for two years after college before taking the LSAT and applying for law school; most students were in their early to mid-20s. You can go to law school at any point in your life, though!
