CURRENT STUDENTS: Faculty and Teaching Assistants (T.A.) should be your primary source for your LOR and Evaluation. Seek out a professor who can explain how you have been successful in difficult classes in comparison to other students.
POST GRADUATE STUDENT & WORKING PROFESSIONALS: Professional supervisors can be good sources for LORs when you connect your work experience to your academic or professional goals. A professional LOR needs to match the successful law school skills with the language and duties of your position.

ALL LAW SCHOOL APPLICANTS: Be sure that your LOR writers use examples to that you demonstrate the following skills:
Problem solving using clear methods to achieve a clear result.
