The path to law school is full of challenges. Regardless of where you currently stand in the process--deciding to apply, preparing for admission, or heading off to law school--you likely have questions, maybe lots of questions. 

Consider this handbook a tool which can help answer many of the questions you might have. Using a FAQ format, it addresses topics such as whether law school is right for you; how best to direct one's undergraduate studies; how to select the right law school; what to expect during the admission process; what kind of concerns confront minority students; how to finance law school; what to expect from legal study; and what kind of career options are available to law school graduates. 

There's a link to the complete handbook at the bottom of the page.
