Santa Fe, NM asked in Uncategorized for New Mexico

Q: Hi. I would like to know if it is difficult to graduate in law school and if the effort is worth the results?

The reason I ask is because it seems like it takes a lot of work and several years to graduate and I am also trying to understand if this is the right career path for someone wanting to make enough money.

A: A New Mexico attorney could probably answer best, but your question remains open for a week. Most schools that lead to a professional degree will involve considerable effort, whether it's law, nursing, accounting, or other. Maybe the best way to answer your question and make your decision is to research the process in depth - the LSAT (admission exam), tuitions, course catalogs, entry-level salaries, and other factors. Do research and speak with law students, attorneys, and learn as much as you can. That will help you make the best decision. Good luck
