Letters of reference are now required at almost all schools in almost all application categories. Most of you will need both "academic references" and "non-academic references".

Principle 7 - Your referees must be committed to writing you a strong letter of reference. The question so ask a potential referee is:

"Do you feel that you could and would you be willing to write me a strong reference for law school?"

Only if you get a strong "YES", should you proceed with that person.

Principle 8 - Your referee will need help. Schedule an appointment. Bring the person a copy of everything in your file including an updated resume. In other words, do your best to help the person help you.
