Building Your Law School Application: The Explanatory Essay

As we head into September, those of you planning on attending law school next fall should be putting together your application materials. This post is designed to cover another facet of law school applications: the explanatory essay. For those of you keeping score at home, we’ve covered letters of recommendation, the personal statement, and the academic index. Those topics are all universally applicable, whereas the explanatory essay may not play a role in everyone’s application process.

Building Your Law School Application: The Academic Index

It’s time for another post on the application building process. So far, we’ve discussed acquiring letters of recommendation and crafting your personal statement. If you’re planning on applying in the next few months, you should hopefully have already contacted your recommenders and you should have a sense of the topic for your personal statement. If you’re feeling overwhelmed already, don’t worry—this post is based on work you’ve already completed. Today, we’re going to discuss the academic index.
