2017 Law School Fair

 

Thinking about Law School?  Then don’t miss the annual Law School Fair on Thursday, November 9th from 10am – 2pm in HUB North Ballroom, sponsored by the Career & Internship Center and the Pre-Law Student Society. Representatives of more than 50 law schools from across the country gather at the UW looking for potential new students – like you! At the Law School Fair, you have the opportunity to interact with admissions staff, pick up brochures and applications, ask questions, get information on how to apply for financial aid, and learn more about the schools which interest you. This is the time to make a lasting impression on a representative from the school of your dreams or discover that the perfect school for you is one that you hadn’t considered.

Law School Fair Tips

One of the most important aspects of applying to law school is selecting the programs that are best suited to your interests and career goals. The provides you with an opportunity to gain in-depth information from school representatives that will help you evaluate programs.

  • Make use of the pre-law services at Center for Undergraduate Advising, Diversity and Student Success.
  • Come prepared.Before the fair, check out which schools will be attending. Then, begin reviewing their websites to get a sense of the law schools and their programs. This will help you identify some of the programs of interest to you and which schools to target at the fair.
  • Rank the schools according to your preference. Visit the schools you are most interested in first so that you have plenty of time to gather as much information as you need.
  • Prepare a list of questions to help you determine if there is a match between the law school program and your interests and goals. Questions may address costs, financial aid, program requirements, course offerings, facilities, location, student life, faculty, and program reputation.
  • Give yourself plenty of time, arrive early, and take a few minutes to review the map of the fair.
  • Be prepared to answer questions from the admissions representatives, such as, “Why do you want to attend law school?” and “When?”.
  • Ask the representative for his/her card; this will provide you with a direct contact that can be used later on for asking follow up questions. Use this opportunity to not only network with the representatives, but also to collect materials for later review.
