Law Admissions - Find and Get into Law School

There are a number of steps in the law school admissions process, not the least of which is selecting the laws schools that you want to apply to.

Some requirements are standard, like taking the LSAT and registering with the Law School Data Assembly Service. Law admissions at different institutions may also require an interview and letters of recommendation.
