The ivey guide to law School

Anna Ivey wrote the book... literally! Pick her brain in The Ivey Guide to Law School Admissions, the first book of its kind written by a former dean of admissions from a top law school, and the gold standard in the genre. Drawing on first-hand admissions experience, The Ivey Guide offers inside tips and dos and don'ts on everything from effective essays, interviewing techniques, résumés, and recommendations, to admissions officers' pet peeves and more.
