This has been something I have been thinking about for years. The majority of my experience has been in the non-profit sector and academic research. I am curious about other ppl's ideas for attending Law School at my age. I may have more questions later.  I do not have children so I am flexible and I can always attend LS in various states.  Any thoughts?

FWIW, I'll be 50 by the time 1L starts. You're just a kid! ;)

I had to laugh about this rather explicit assumption... FWIW, I have four school-aged kids, and applied to schools on both coasts as well as a number of states in between.  I ended up only 400 miles from my hometown, but that was purely due to academic/economic factors, and had nothing to do with proximity.
I'm in a lynch mob?  I had no idea.  This is really worrying; I really don't have time for another extra-curricular activity.

Honestly lots of people do at that age. Normally part time/weekends, but a few fulltime during the week(depends on if you have a family/work/etc)

Believe or not, one lady is over 60 and a 1L at mine. Not a joke.
