It varies by school and program. Part-time night programs tend to have an older cohort than full-time day programs, even at the same school. Some schools traditionally take older students than others. The most 'typical' student age at a traditional law school is someone in their mid-twenties, a year or two out of college. But folks in their late twenties are common, and I don't think anyone in their early thirties would stand out.

There's a range at every school, and there isn't really an age at which one becomes "too old" for law school (although note that the financial considerations may change significantly as one ages and/or starts raising a family). I had a mentor once who attended law school in his late 40s, and ended up becoming a very successful lawyer.
