Luther graduates have had a high degree of success in gaining entering law school. While factors such as GPA and the LSAT score have a role in narrowing a student's law school search, much of his decision has to do with personal preferences. These preferences may have to do with school location, prestige, program specifications, or placement for work after law school.
In talking with students about law school we tend to think of three levels.
In recent years more students have chosen not to go directly to law school. Some do a volunteer program for a short period of time and others work, sometimes for five to ten years, before continuing their legal education. Not only is this is a national trend, we think for those who are unsure of their career path or wanting to take a break from intense studying, this can be a good choice.
No matter which path is taken to earn a law degree, Luther's liberal arts education helps to prepare its students for each of these higher education paths. So whether one is looking to work in the nation's capital, the Twin Cities, or the Quad cities, students are prepared for their continued education at each of the three types of schools that would take them there.
