A Letter to a 1L Law Student

This page provides a lot of information.

At this point in your education, my recommendation is:

  1. Keep debt to a minimum. If you graduate with significant debt from law school or combination of law school and undergrad, you are going to have a very difficult time. Do not take out loans unless absolutely necessary.
  2. Figure out which area of law you want to practice. Pick two areas. Take relevant classes. Then intern at places where you can get some real training. If it’s criminal law, intern at a PD’s office. Locate a mentor who can give you actual legal guidance when you leave law school and get your own paying clients.
  3. Have some money put away (or some way to pay for your life) for the first year after you leave law school. You will make very little money that first year.
  4. Keep debt to a minimum.
  5. Keep debt to a minimum.
  6. Etc.
