On September 21, the University hosted its annual Faculty of Law Fair.
This year it was held virtually and was open to all students and alumni. More than 80 law school admissions teams from across the country and LSAT preparation companies participated in the fair. Notable schools included the University of California Los Angeles, the University of Notre Dame, and Boston University, among dozens of others.
A few days before the show, pre-legal counsel Christina Butler hosted a workshop to help students prepare for the show. She helped the students make their specific appointments and gave information on how best to maximize time during the three-hour fair. Butler also helped students formulate questions to ask law schools when they met with their representatives. Questions ranged from details about the admissions process, information about the school’s curriculum and the general culture around law school.
Students had the opportunity to ask these questions in two different meeting styles at the law school lounge, in a group question-and-answer session, or in a 10-minute one-on-one session with a member. an admissions team at the law school. The question-and-answer sessions lasted 30 minutes and usually started with a short presentation providing basic information about the law school. Then the students could ask their questions or write them in the chat for the advisers to answer. The interests of the students in the sessions determined the focus of the question-and-answer session. Some sessions focused more on campus culture, while others looked at opportunities to get involved in the surrounding area, including social justice projects that students could join.
It was a very effective way for students to find out more about the schools they were interested in, but they could also sign up for one-on-one sessions with the representative. This allowed the students to provide more information about themselves including why they are interested in law school and why they would be a good fit at this particular school. They could also ask questions they might not want in a group session. It also allowed students to provide a face behind the request for admissions reps to remember. Most of the students were eager to seize this opportunity, especially if they were currently in the admissions process.
The University Law School Fair is one of the first fairs at the start of the admission cycle. This gives students a unique opportunity to interact with admissions officers before most other universities. Students who have not yet applied could use this time to learn more about each school and refine their interests when the time comes. They might also find more information about LSAT preparation companies and get a better idea of ââhow they will prepare for the test. Preparing with a preparatory course or a private tutor is a very popular method of study for students, although most can be quite expensive. Students applying in this admissions cycle could learn more about the process and possibly get advice for their personal application.
After the law school fair was over, the students got a better idea of ââthe school they were interested in. LSAT.
