Dear Ms. Contact,

I am a junior at Sample College, and found your name and contact information on our Alumni Career Network. I am hoping that you will be able to help me learn more about options in law. I have been encouraged to consider the field by family and professors, alike, and would like to determine if it would be a good match for me.

I am interested in hearing about how and why you entered the field, the pros and cons of working in law, classes and co-curricular activities I should consider if I were to decide to move in this direction, and your advice on how I might test the waters, experientially, over the next few summers.

I appreciate your willingness to advise me, and look forward to contacting you to set up an informational interview.

Sincerely,

YourFirstName YourLastName ‘XX (Class Year)
