Many legal pros have been on the road you’re on – no matter where you are on that path from pre-law to law school to bar exam to your career. The Law Student Division has gathered their wisdom on the top topics for law students in this Law School 101 guide, kind of our Law School 101 library. We’ll keep adding more information from our Before the Bar blog, Student Lawyer magazine, and our partners in the ABA and across the legal universe.
