I think you could do real estate part time if you carefully limited the amount of clients you took on. A girl in my class (full-time) is doing it. Your time management skills would be critical. Also you would have to figure out how to keep exam time free. I think I would keep a very careful schedule and plan certain times of the week when you could take appointments/show houses and stick to that. When making an appointment instead of saying, when is good for you? say I could meet you tommorrow at 5 or at 7, which works for you? That is a little thing, but in fact a useful and effective trick.I run a small business with my husband and manage rental property. Part of the reason it works is that I can delegate to him when necessary and I have flexibility in my schedule. Maybe in your 1st year you should only accomidate existing clients, until you get the feel for law school and then go from there.
I work 40+ hours a week in a civil engineering company and then attend law school at night. I agree with Zemog that it is difficult to balance life, work, school, and family (my wife is "due" within the next two weeks - DURING FINALS). However, I have great support from my work and family. I think it is vital to have this support while attending law school.Working in real estate and going to law school will be very beneficial to you and your employer. At my current job, I work with residental and commercial developers designing projects and guiding them through the maze of governmental approval. I have used my knowledge of the law (and how to find it) several times and it has greatly benefited my clients. Also...After you graduate, you may be able to take the real estate brokers exam (depending on which state you are in). As you know, the brokers make the money!
