Most law schools do not interview their applicants, and your essays are often the only opportunity to make a positive, personal impression. Almost all law schools require a personal statement. In addition, it may be possible to submit optional essay topics and/or addenda. Keep in mind that each essay should succinctly address any prompts provided by the law school, and you should carefully avoid redundancy between essays.
Your essays must reflect your development of the qualities and core competencies valued by law schools. It is unlikely that you have the space to elaborate on all of the examples listed below. Choose those that feel most authentic, illustrating the qualities you choose to discuss by providing examples of active engagement and careful self-reflection. It is possible to reveal some of these qualities through your personal statement, while others may be more evident in the content of an optional essay.
