We'll help you every step of the way.

Leg Up Legal is providing a new and innovative approach for career development for prospective law students. While there are tons of widely available resources about LSAT prep, law school admissions, and preparing for law school, there are few opportunities for prospective law students to gain in-depth knowledge about the wide range of legal practice areas available, and the numerous legal career paths that students may pursue. We are filling that gap by providing candid, transparent, easily accessible information about the legal profession and how to start your legal career off on the right foot.  We will connect you with experienced attorneys who are willing to share their wisdom, encouragement, and support. We also carefully curate and create professional development advice that is immediately applicable to your career goals and provide it to you in short, easily digestible videos, online posts, and downloadable PDFs that you can access from anywhere at anytime.
