2 Reasons to Go to Law School Challenge

E-mail Print PDF

With the latest LSAT over, and 0Ls kicking off their final year of the good life college, we'd like to take the opportunity to invite all the youngins to enter our 2 Reasons to Go to Law School Challenge. (Not limited to prospective students, current students and recent grads are also welcome.)

If you're unfamiliar, the concept is simple. You went to law school for some reason, and we want to hear why. If your reasons are good, you can even win a prize, but we have to warn you, it's exceedingly tough. Basically, it's as tough as actually having two good reasons for shelling out $100k in tuition for a law degree.

Want to play? Here are the official rules:

1. You need 2 reasons

a. Your actual reasons, not hypothetical reasons

2. They must be good reasons

3. They must be reasons to go to law school

If you would like to play, send your 2 reasons to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and be sure to include your school (we'll obfuscate it, if you're worried about anonymity), what year you are (or your year of graduation), and whether you are receiving an in-state tuition discount or any scholarship money. If you're in the application process, give us some information about your background; where you hope to go to, what your current undergrad is, your major, your GPA, and if you have your LSAT back, your score.

If your two reasons blow BL1Y away, Con Daily will send you a copy of either Philadelphia Lawyer's Happy Hour is for Amateurs, or Dr. Rob's Crazy. And, if that sentence wasn't hedged enough, winners are decided at the sole discretion of your judge, BL1Y. He'll play fair, but no whining, no appeals, all judgments final.

So, there you go, fire away!
