Making A Lawyer-er

When you’re studying for the LSAT, you have to maintain a good work-work balance. Like, don’t spend all your time studying for the Reading Comprehension section. Also study for Logic Games.

Saved by the BelLSAT

Well it looks like soon you’ll be able to enjoy a snack attack right where you have your Zack Attacks, because a Saved by the Bell-themed restaurant will be serving up A.C. Sliders in Chicago later this year. Further face-palm-worthy puns will surely abound.

But the real question, as you take your brief – brief, I say! – break from your LSAT studies, is what each of these characters would have looked like had they pursued a legal career. What field would they work in? Where would they go to school?
