A Woman's Guide to Law School provides the answers, while addressing, specifically, the needs and interests of the female student.Linda Hirshman's fresh approach gives women the advice they need--information the law schools often won't tell them.

With statistics and data--as well as stories of successful women law students--A Woman's Guide to Law School will empower women so they can make wise choices and seize control over their own education and careers.
