    I’m not graduating for a few years, why should I attend Law Day?

    Although Law Day is a great resource for those seniors about to apply to Law School to ask
    questions and get information about particular schools and the admission process, it is also a
    great opportunity for underclassmen to take part in. Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors can
    use Law Day to network for future opportunities, explore various kinds of Law Schools, ask
    questions about what they can do now to prepare for Law School, and learn more Law School
    and whether or not it is for them.
  •  

    What should I wear to Law Day?

    You are meeting admissions counselors from Law Schools you may apply to in the future so you
    should dress business casual. First impressions matter!
  •  

    What should I bring with me?

    • Questions for Law Schools (Example: What courses do you offer? What sets your school apart from other Law Schools?)
    • An idea of what schools you want to talk to if you don’t have much time and need to prioritize (See list of participating schools on Law Day webpage)
    • Paper and pen to write down any information given to you at Law Day
    • A folder for all of the papers and business cards you receive from Law Schools
  •  

    I’m not a pre-law student, can I still attend?

    Yes! Students of any major or program may participate in Law Day. Events such as the LSAT
    sample class sponsored by Kaplan will be of interest to any student planning to take a graduate
    school entrance exam. Also, admissions procedures talked about during the Question and
    Answer session may apply to students of any graduate school program. Even if students are not
    planning on attending graduate school, there are other activities such as Moot Court that can be
    quite interesting!
  •  

    I can’t attend the entire Law Day, should I still attend part of it?

    Absolutely! Students are welcome and encouraged to attend all parts of Law Day, but if they
    cannot come to a particular part because of class, work, or other obligations, they can come at
    any time. For information on what time particular events are scheduled for, see the Law Day
    Announcement on the Law Day webpage or on flyers throughout campus.
