Prepare for a Law School Forum in (Less Than) 3 Minutes

Prepare for a Law School Forum in (Less Than) 3 Minutes


So, you’ve registered to
attend an L-S-A-C Law School Forum. Congratulations!
You’ve taken an important step toward applying to law school.
The question now is how best to prepare for your visit to make
the most of your time there. We are often asked about what to
wear to a law school forum. There’s no official dress
code, but since you could be meeting with the director of
admission from a law school you may apply to, you will want to
project a confident and professional image. Business
casual is always appropriate. A pair of slacks and a
buttoned down shirt for instance, or a sweater top
paired with a skirt or slacks. Another tip, dress in
layers, as temperatures can vary from room to room. L-S-A-C’s online guides to Law Schools can help you sort out
the law schools according to the factors that are important to
you for instance urban or rural location. Size. Special
programs or particular strengths or interests of the faculty.
Create a list of schools you would like to get to know better
at the LSAC Forum. Think about the questions you want to ask
law school representatives so that you can gather the
information you need most. Ask the questions that will help you
identify the law school that’s the best fit for you. Consider
asking questions about the admission process, curriculum
and faculty, employment of graduates, costs and financial
aid. You can also get insights about the campus and surrounding
community. There are several workshops offered at L-S-A-C
forums that are not available anywhere else. From advice to
help you finance your legal education to navigating the
admission process to getting LSAT insight straight from the
test developers. You’ll want to plan your day so you can
attend these workshops and have time to meet with law school
representatives. The forums are open house, but print out
a schedule at L-S-A-C.org, forward slash workshops before
you go to make sure you don’t miss anything. Print out your
ticket, know the times of the workshops you’d like to attend
and your list of schools to meet. Leave your résumé,
application and transcripts at home. Do bring a list of
questions that will help you further your law school search.
An L-S-A-C forum is your chance to learn more about pursuing a
legal education. So, engage in thoughtful conversations with
the law school representatives, network with your peers and
gather as much information as you can. Above all, keep an open
mind, and you may be surprised
