References

References are people who know you professionally or academically and can attest to your skills, knowledge, professionalism, and work experience. Law school professors and supervisors from past and/or present employers make the best references. Do not use family members or social acquaintances. List a maximum of three references, but no fewer than two. Please see the Reference Sheet Anatomy link for a sample reference sheet.
