Posted by LSAC on February 3rd, 2021

Are you ready to take your Advanced Law Degrees from the top law school? If yes, then no one can stop you. But, in case your answer is no, then you need to clear our mind out. There are possibilities of getting no in answer, because of many mythologies about law school.

Today, we have busted some misconceptions about the law school you may have heard in this article. Let’s find out the actual fact behind the lies.

Myth: 1 – You only have study time no play

Fact: Although we may have heard about this myth several times, the truth is totally different. Every law institute isn’t only about assignments, tests, and examination and it’s not only the hard work you will get into the school. You will get an opportunity to make your social circle stronger for the year, just like any kind of degree school.

Myth: 2 – Textbooks are enough for studying law

Fact: In another degree institute like undergraduate colleges, you might just get prepared for test and exams with studying textbooks. But, within the law school, you need to have other necessary study materials also. Supplies like tapes, padfolio, treatises, laptop, and much more are required along with textbooks to get cleared in the exams.

Myth: 3 – There is no difference between law and undergraduate school

Fact:  Every school like medical, law, trade are different from each other and also from any undergrads or grad school. Law schools only focus on teaching students about the law studies to pursue their law degree and attorney as professionals. The school for an attorney will set their kind of tests and make sure that they find the best quality attorney.

Myth: 4 – There will be no friends only competition

Fact: We all agree that law institutes are a bit challenging, but it doesn’t mean that you won’t be having any friends. However, there are going to be law-related competition among students, and we can also agree that competition is good for getting the best lawyer.

Yet, you should know that difference between having a healthy & unhealthy competition so that you can work out for your social circle too.

Myth: 5 – Students needs to work hard instead of being intellect

Fact: Well, if you want to be a successful lawyer, you need to be a genius even before you do any work hard on your assignments or tests. Law school will teach you all the abilities to become a quality lawyer, but you need to be smart while speaking, researching, and thinking along with working hard.

To conclude

These were some of the major heard misconceptions about law school. So, are you cleared about them to get your law degree?
