The admissions committee views the personal statement as an opportunity to evaluate the writing and thinking ability of applicants and learn more about their interests, personal background, and concerns. Applicants should refer to the application form for information regarding the content of the personal statement. You may also wish to address: (a) why you wish to study law, setting forth your special qualifications or aptitudes; (b) how you plan to use your legal training; and (c) any additional information you deem important for the admissions committee to consider. Your personal statement is your opportunity to tell us about yourself, your background, your achievements, and other factors you want us to consider in evaluating you for admission.

Background Information on me: I served 5 years in the Navy and I want to make a difference in the criminal justice system and keep innocent people from going to prison and help make harsher punishments for those who commit the crimes.
