Law School Admissions Books

Anna Ivey wrote the book... literally! Pick her brain in The Ivey Guide to Law School Admissions, the first book of its kind written by a former dean of admissions from a top law school, and the gold standard in the genre. Drawing on first-hand admissions experience, The Ivey Guide offers inside tips and dos and don'ts on everything from effective essays, interviewing techniques, résumés, and recommendations, to admissions officers' pet peeves and more.
