Law school offers more than just studying books and briefs. You can choose extracurricular activities while in law school to enhance your studies and to help you prepare for the type of law you want to practice. Options for extracurriculars include

  • Considering whether you have time to devote to a law journal/law review.

  • Deciding whether you want to hone your advocacy and public speaking skills in a moot court competition.

  • Gaining legal research skills (and a valuable contact) as a research assistant for a professor.

  • Joining a club to discover more about areas of practice and get involved in leadership.
