How best to prepare for law school is one of the great mysteries of life. The application process can be confusing and stressful, in part because there is so much misinformation floating around.
We can help you by answering your questions about law school.
We send our undergraduates to some of the best law schools in the country, including Harvard, Stanford, Cal, UCLA, USC, Chicago, Notre Dame, Cornell, and Virginia. In addition, each year a number of students opt to stay at USD and enroll at our own law school, while others attend a wide variety of local and regional law schools.
