Welcome to Top-Law-, a free and valuable resource to assist law school applicants, students, and graduates.
The defining feature of this site is the TLS forums which historically has been focused primarily on law school applicants with discussion forums such as the law school admissions forum , the LSAT prep forum , the personal statement forum , and the choosing a law school forum . However, over the years the forums for law school students and graduates have become quite popular as well especially the bar prep forum , the legal employment forum , and the forum for law school students . A couple of other noteworthy forums are the law school graduates only forum ( verification of graduate status required) and the TLS lounge (registration required).
Attending a top law school can help with job placement because of the extensive alumni network. But these connections can also be made just as easily at less prominent schools. Another important factor to consider is whether the cost of a top law school will end up being worth the investment. The annual cost for these three-year programs can exceed $80,000. If they’re not able to obtain a high-paying position, their law school loans could end up being quite burdensome. The classroom environment is also a significant aspect of whether a student will feel comfortable at each school. Students should research the quality of the faculty and the class sizes before they rule out any options. They should also be aware of the schools’ bar exam passage rates.
