Working While in Law School

The transition to law school requires focused attention on coursework, including more reading and analysis than what was likely experienced during students’ undergraduate education. Successful law students devote their attention to their legal studies during the first year. Drake Law School, as well as the majority of law schools, discourages students from employment during the first year.

Second and third year law students should abide by ABA Standard 304 which states, "(f) A student may not be employed more than 20 hours per week in any week in which the student is enrolled in more than twelve class hours.”
