Meet Liesl Eschbach

What made you want to go to law school?

During my undergraduate degree, I decided I had a strong desire to work in the music industry in a role apart from that of a musician. I realized I wanted to be the individual that could help musicians secure fair deals with record labels, publishers, and other music business entities and organizations.

Having taken time off after undergrad, what did you do before applying to law school?

I was a musician, as well as an artist and repertoire manager at Prudential Music Group.

What do you wish you knew at the start of the application process that you know now?

Rachel [the Director of Prelaw Services] made sure I was incredibly informed regarding my applications and the application process. There is nothing I feel like I need to know now that I did not know at the start of my applications

Any tips or advice for future law school applicants?

I think law student applicants do not need to put so much pressure on themselves. Eventually, you will end up where you are meant to be. Trust in the process and you will find what is a good fit for you.

What is your legal dream job after graduation? 

To be an attorney working in the music industry.

How did JD Advising help you through the application process?
