    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.

    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
    • 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 attend Law Day.

    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.

    Whom should I contact if I have any further questions about Law Day?

    Stephen Manning, Ph.D., Chair of the Political Science Department
