* An attack or midfield stick that is less than 40 inches or more than 42 inches long is an illegal stick. * A long-stick midfield or d-pole less than 52 inches and more than 72 inches long is illegal. * If the distance from the top of the head of any stick to the bottom of the stop is less than 10 inches- it is illegal. * If the width of the top of any stick head is less than 6 ½ inches, it's illegal. * If the official places a ball in your stick and it doesn't fall out when he tips the stick over, you are in violation. * If the pocket of your stick sags too low- you got it, you're illegal. * If a ball does not fall out of the back of your stick or has a lip on it that aids you in facing off- the stick's illegal. from http://www.e-lacrosse.com/ely6.html

Generally, the best stick length is for the shaft to be the length of your arm; however, just a standard stick length seems to work best for most people. If you cut it to your arm length, it makes it easier to maneuver. But, a really good lacrosse player can maneuver the stick regardless.
Around 60 inches.
