After I get out of my 4 year university, should I go straight into law school or work?Answered
I don’t know if I should go work to get into the real world or go ahead and go into law school and intern while I’m in law school.

If you take a gap year, It's typically really hard to get yourself to go back. I'd recommend going right in and working on the side.
I agree with points some of the others made. It totally depends on you and only you can decide. Consider these points:
-Why wait to get your law degree?
-Is there an opportunity for a paid internship?
-Can you handle working and schooling? Remember to not stress yourself out.
-Make sure that when you take a gap year you are committed to coming back to school
-Look into the school and make sure that when you come back there won’t be a bunch of others trying at the same time. A lot of people took a gap year because of COVID so trying to get a spot might be tough.
-Is there a way you can ease yourself into law class and work?
-Try working as much as you can in your off time before starting with taking a gap year.
I think it might be best to just go straight into law school. The decision is totally yours but I hope this helped.
One thing to consider is studying for the LSAT. I'm not an attorney, but it's my understanding that test is crucial to landing top tier law school admissions, so you may want to give yourself ample time to prepare for the LSAT.
