3 things you should ask before going to law school

If you're considering attending law school, it isn't as simple as selecting a college of your choice.

There are several factors that need to be considered—some more important than others. Ask yourself these three questions before pursuing a law school education.

1. Are you getting your money's worth?
Many people enter law school assuming that it'll be worth the cost of tuition—and then some. But is it? The cost of law school has been rising in recent years, and for some, law school may not give you a good return on your investment. Look into starting salaries of graduates as well as earnings over an extended career before making your choice.

2. What kind of lawyer do you want to be?
Before entering law school, it's important to have a directed career path. Decide which specialization you would like to pursue whether it be intellectual property law, business law, criminal law, or patent law. Narrowing down your desired field will make the choice for your next three years a lot easier.

3. Where do you want to practice?
It's important to consider the location of a law school in terms of where you want to practice. Once you're in school, your internships and work will largely determine where you end up practicing. Look into different schools based on where you see yourself living long-term.
