 Law School Personal Statement

Law School Personal Statement

My approach to the law school personal statement is different from other essay consultants.  While they suggest the applicant write about their understanding of the law, or discuss working or interning at a law firm. My approach is for an applicant to tell a story or stories which convey to applicants that they are already lawyers and have been their entire lives. Have you always been an advocate for yourself or others? Show them how! have you always respect the rule of law throughout your life? Show them how! Do you have people skills? Do you have good listening skills? Do you value good writing? Do you communicate well? Show them!!

Our Process:

  • Via telephone, we discuss the law school personal statement.
  • I ask questions, take notes, looking for an approach to this essay that is a total original, something another applicant could have never possibly written. I then assist in the outlining for a first draft.
  • When I receive the first draft, we discuss what works and what doesn’t. The applicant then uses our notes and suggestions to write a second draft.
  • Next up is one more review of their draft. This is where I point out mistakes or errors in the text.

This important document needs to depict personal details of your life concisely and thoughtfully to an admissions committee that is looking for reasons to deny people. Top LSAT scores are important, but the essay is another way to show admissions officers you’re already a lawyer by virtue of how you have lived.
