With the recent passage of this year’s Mother’s Day, we got to thinking, what would a mom want to ask her soon-to-be law student? As someone who was once a law a student, and as someone who has a mom, I feel at least 95% qualified to answer that question. And thusly (who doesn’t love an unnecessary suffix?) I bring you a list of things your mom may or may not ask you as you head off to law school.
Mom’s Law School Question I: What are you going to practice?
You can try to placate relatives with assurances that you’ll have it figured out by the time you graduate, but mothers generally require answer of greater depth.

Big news from Blueprint LSAT Prep today: After nearly a decade of prepping kids for law school, we’re prepping for law school ourselves. Only we’re not attending one. No, dear LSAT blog readers, we’re forming one. And yours truly has been tapped as dean. Be it my pedigree, experience, or the way my profile will look on marketing materials, we’re planning to hit the ground running.
How will our law school be different? I’m glad you asked.
First, we’re going to get you some work experience. But not just in an area you pick. We’re implementing a rotation between different clinicals your first year. Much like law firms will have new/summer associates “try out” different practice groups before assigning them to one, we’re going to have you rotate between different areas of law in that first year of law school.
