Going to law school is the start of an exciting, stressful, but significant time in any aspiring lawyer’s life. It can be a lot, from spending three years learning the ins and outs of the law to passing the Bar exam.
If you have a friend, sibling, child, partner, or someone who you care about in law school and want to buy them a gift, it can feel hard to choose something. Whether they just started, are in the middle, or are getting ready to graduate, here are some excellent gifts for law students.
There are many options to go with when fighting a legal case. You can plead guilty, lie, etc. A great joke gift is this Luxxis legal decision-maker.
It’s a small metal product that spins, landing on whatever the answer to your question about a legal decision can be. Some of the options are insanity plea, beg, and lie. It’s not legal advice, but it’s funny!
Stemless wine glasses are great gifts, and this personalized law school wine class is perfect for law students. It’s a simple, clear glass that allows you to put the law school they attend, the year they will graduate, and the scales of justice on it.

An excellent gift for a law student is this see-you-later litigator coffee mug. It’s got subtle humor that anyone can appreciate. The mug is simple, utterly white, with thin black writing.
