Pre, Pre-law school

There’s a new magnet school in Indianapolis focusing on law and public policy. The school is starting out in fall 2009 with grades 6 through 9 and will emphasize the principles of democracy, justice, respect, and service to others. It will eventually expand through 12th grade and is the fourth known magnet high school in the country with a law and public policy focus. Students have to apply to attend.

My first thought when I heard about the formation of this magnet school was how much demand will there be from students and families to attend? Law and public policy impact everyone, no matter where you live or what you do, but that’s not something a 13-year-old may realize.

Another thought is how many students will want to go there because they already have an interest in the law, or will a school like this inspire more students to go into the law?

What do you think about this school? Did you know when you were in junior high that you wanted to be an attorney? How old were you when you decided to enter the law as a career?
