The Trials of Law School Releases a Comprehensive Self Assessment for Prelaw Students.

The Trials of Law School has announced a comprehensive self assessment for perspective law students before they enter law school titled "Questions Students Don't Ask Before Law School, But Should." The resource focuses on what students should consider before law school, before they take out large student loans, and before they enter a dismal legal job market. The self assessment is written by Porter Heath Morgan, attorney and producer of The Trials of Law School. The Trials of Law School is the first feature documentary film on the law school experience, and has helped prepare thousands of incoming students for the law school experience.

Morgan says that today it is economically necessary for an individual self assessment before a student begins law school. “Today’s law school graduates are facing the worst job market in the history of the profession.” Morgan adds, “that being said, a law school degree is still a great background for a number of diverse and successful professions and career tracks.” The key, Morgan says, is to know as much as you can about what you want to do before you start law school, which comes from asking the right questions.    

The two areas prelaw students should focus on are their life goals after law school and the current skill set they bring into law school. “If a student will honestly explore what they want to do after law school and what skills they currently have before law school, it can help make their decision much clearer, whether that means going to law school or not.” Morgan adds, “unfortunately, many graduates are asking those hard questions now, after three years of school, with $100,000 in debt, and with very little job prospects.”

The full article, "Questions Students Don't Ask Before Law School, But Should" is available at The Trials of Law School website, Morgan will also be speaking to prelaw students and organizations around the country this fall.
