In partnership with UW Pre-Law fraternity Phi Alpha Delta (PAD), we welcome Seattle UW undergrads and alumni to join us for an event where pre-law students will get the chance to hear from panels of law school admission deans, legal career panel, and attend an mini law school fair. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided.

WHEN: Friday, November 1st, 2019, 1:00-5:30PM (please look below for a breakdown of the schedule)

WHERE: Husky Union Building (HUB) 340

WHO: This event is open to all UW Seattle undergrads and alumni. RSVP is necessary to attend the two panels. No RSVP required for the Mini Law School Fair.

ALL students and alumni are invited to for the Mini Law School Fair portion from 4-5:30PM. RSVP is not required for this portion, but please bring your UW Husky Card for check in.

If you are only able to come to some portions of the event, please try leaving during the designated breaks or to sit in the back of the room so you may leave as quietly as possible during the panels.
