Law School

Definition - What does Law School mean?

Law school is a graduate school at a college or university attended by students who want to become attorneys.

In order to get into law school, students must have a bachelor's degree, take standardized tests, and meet other criteria for admission. Upon successful completion of law school, each graduate receives a Juris Doctor degree (J.D.).

Justipedia explains Law School

There are hundreds of law schools in the United States alone. The curricula at these schools are generally approved by the state bar association or the American Bar Association. In all, there are approximately 200 ABA-approved law schools.

Students that graduate from ABA-approved schools have certain benefits that are not necessarily afforded to graduates from schools accredited by state bar associations. One of those benefits is that graduates of ABA-approved law schools can take the bar exam in any state.
