Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are of interest to law schools who are looking for applicants who have been engaged in their community in leadership positions, public service, athletics for competition or healthy lifestyle, and activities that reflect your values and interests.

Your resume, personal statement, or an addendum can convey to law schools not only that you are a successful student, but also a sense of how well-rounded you are.
