When You Know You Should Go to Law School

Thinking about going to law school, but not sure if it’s the right time? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. A lot of people, at one time or another, consider going to law school. Their reasons for wanting to pursue a J.D. are as different as their tastes in music. But people who do decide to go to law school and then succeed share some similar traits.

Here are three times in a person’s life when going to law school is the right decision.

When you want to help people.
At its core, the legal profession is about helping people, and not just in a “legal aid” way, either. Lawyers help people charged with crimes defend themselves. They help businesses start, grow and thrive. They help families survive major life changes like deaths, disabilities and divorces. And they help protect everyone’s Constitutional rights.

This is all important stuff, and is part of the reason the United States is one of the greatest countries in the world in which to live. If you like helping people by solving problems, advocating and fighting for rights–and want an opportunity to do so at the highest levels–going to law school is the right decision.

When you want career options.
Let’s be honest, today’s job market isn’t the best. Companies aren’t hiring the way they did five or 10 years ago. But a J.D. can open doors and help you find a job–in nearly any field. In fact, some people consider a law school degree more pliable than an MBA.

The critical-thinking skills, communications techniques and understanding of how to solve problems you learn in law school are proving valuable in every industry.

Companies want to hire people who know how to get things done. And today, they are not just working as lawyers. They’re leading Fortune 500 companies, working in marketing, leading risk management offices for healthcare providers, and working in nearly every other industry. Want options? Then you want to go to law school.

When it’s something you’ve always dreamed of doing.
If you’ve always dreamed of going to law school and becoming a lawyer, there is really no better time to follow your dream.

Right now, law schools are hunting down people like you and making it easier than ever to apply, be accepted and earn your J.D. by offering major scholarships.

If your dream is to be a lawyer, now is the time.
