Working as a Paralegal Helps Prepare for LSAT

Having experience as a paralegal can help law school applicants and current law students, according to U.S. News.

Working as a paralegal can help those preparing to take the LSAT. LSAT scores are one of the deciding factors used by law schools when admitting students. This is why the scores need to be maximized as much as possible. Preparing for this test takes at least four months, with many law school students devoting close to one year of preparation. You can study alone, or use an LSAT instructor to help with the studying and preparation. Some law firms even reimburse their employees who take prep classes.

Recommendation letters are also taken into consideration when people apply to law schools. Admissions departments want to see that candidates have the skills and characteristics needed for a law school class. They also want to know that you can use those skills while working as a lawyer.

You can secure excellent recommendations by building a strong network now. Build relationships with professors, co-workers and supervisors who you might be able to lean on for a recommendation when the time comes. You should have two letters of recommendation from undergraduate professors and one from the law firm at which you work as a paralegal.
