If you want to practice family law or criminal law, for example, it makes sense to apply to schools who specialize in those fields.   How you choose to lug around extremely heavy law books and your laptop is a matter of personal choice but you're going to need something large enough to carry all your class essentials.

Ms. JD is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to the success of women in law school and the legal profession. They run a useful and interesting website (where I’m honored to be a Writer in Residence) and have an on campus program, the National Women Law Students’ Organization, at law schools across the country.
