Fall 2016 Prelaw Seminars 

Unless otherwise noted Events will be held Friday 3:00 in TETC 152


September 16 -- The LSAT:  This session will introduce the LSAT exam and explain what to expect when taking the exam (both in the day of the exam and in the exam itself). It will review how to avoid common exam mistakes and maximize scores. This session will explain how the exam is used in admission by various law schools and answer some common and basic questions about the exam, including: What is a good score? Is it possible to improve my score? When should I take the exam? (When) should I re-take the exam? What happens if I do not do well? as well as other questions which students may have. This session will be helpful for students taking the LSAT September 24 or 26 as well as for students beginning to consider law school and trying to understand the process and what is in the test.

September 30 – The Dos and Don’ts of a Good Law School Application: As law schools open their application year, this session reviews good application practices and for what law schools are looking.  Conversely, it will also review what might be problematic in applications.  If you aren’t applying this year, this session should still be useful; a good application can benefit from advance planning

October 14 – Academic Advising and Preparing for Law School: This session during program planning will review how to structure an undergraduate program to best prepare for law school. What skills do you need to hone for law school and what classes will aid in that task? It will also address law school expectations and process of evaluation. This is NOT meant to replace a meeting with your adviser, but to supplement it. There will be time for individual consultation and questions at the end of the group session.

Week of October 24 -- Consultations for effective personal statements:  During this week individual meetings can be scheduled to work on effective personal statements. Personal statements are an important part of law school applications and can often be the determining factor. Before finishing and submitting applications, you can use this opportunity to meet with your prelaw adviser to consult on and revise your personal statement. Please have a draft and e-mail for an appointment.  Meetings will be held in FH297.

November 11 -- Roundtable discussion with admission directors from regional law schools: This session will include admission directors from regional law schools who answer questions about their admission processes, programs, applications, and standards. They answer any questions students may have and are available for individual consultation after the session. This is an important opportunity to gain some inside information into the law school admission process.
