Law school offers many opportunities to get involved. Membership in a club or organization can help law students network and learn about possible areas of law they want to practice after school. It also looks good on resumes. Additionally, clubs have the added benefit of free food.
However, joining clubs often require membership dues. It’s possible to spend over $75 on membership dues a year. $75 a year might seem like a drop in the bucket, but every little bit adds up.
If you plan on joining a club, make sure you’re committed to attending the meetings, or you’re just wasting your money. Scout out the club by attending a meeting. If you like it, join. If you think you’re not going to enjoy it, don’t.
Not only does limiting your club membership save you money, it also can save you time in your already busy schedule.
