Minority and Non-Traditional Law Students / JD/MBA
« on: October 13, 2011, 01:17:11 PM »
I'm a 30 yr-old banker in the Chicago area.  I've had my MBA (from a school different from the one for which I would be attending law school) for the past two years and am a Level II CFA candidate.  I recently found out that due to my father's status as a Vietnam vet, I can attend any public university for free, undergrad or grad.  Knowing this, I've done some soul searching and cost-benefit analyses and have decided that I cannot pass this opportunity.

Given my current occupation (some of my clients are attorneys), I know the job market is soft.  My questions for those that have attended LS and are now working are such:  what types of practice will be ideal for me to leverage the experience and education that I already have?  Additionally, will my previous experience even be relevant when looking for employment post-LS?

Any input is gladly appreciated.
