Law school is one of the most intense times in life. The academic demands of reading, researching, studying, and preparing to practice as a lawyer are significant. Who has time to “get involved"? Great lawyers do, that's who.
Students who get involved have a broader experience from which to pull when practicing and have an expanded network to utilize when conducting job searches or gathering information. They also have a resume better equipped to stand out from other applicants due to their efforts and successes with externships, scholarship, competitions, and campus activities.
