After the Application

In the pre-law world, we often talk about the law school admission process as a critical step towards pursuing a career in the legal field. However, there are some important things to consider beyond applying to law school. 
In addition to attending and graduating from law school, future attorneys will need to take additional steps to become licensed attorneys. Each jurisdiction in the United States has different requirements, but it may be helpful to know about some common requirements that future attorneys may encounter. Students considering a legal career in a specific state should become familiar with the National Conference of Bar Examiners’ requirements for that jurisdiction.

Future law students may find it helpful to have foundational knowledge about the requirements for aspiring attorneys.
