KNOXVILLE –- Potential law school applicants in East Tennessee are invited to attend a Law School Admission Workshop and Recruitment Fair on Oct. 10 at the University of Tennessee College of Law in Knoxville.
The program will begin with a question-and-answer session with admissions representatives from noon to 1 p.m. EDT in Room 132. Topics will include how to prepare for law school as an undergraduate, the law school admission process, the LSAT, and how to finance a legal education.
From 1:30 to 4 p.m., admissions representatives from several law schools in the Southeast will be available to discuss their law schools and their application processes. Law schools invited to send representatives and/or materials include Alabama, Charleston, Cumberland, Emory, Georgia, Georgia State, Kentucky, Maryland, Memphis, Mercer, Mississippi College, Richmond, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest and Washington and Lee.
The Recruitment Fair will be held in the college’s Commons and Rotunda.
“Anyone who is considering law as a career and is specifically interested in the law school admissions process should attend this event,” said Karen. R. Britton, director of admission, financial aid and career services for UT’s College of Law.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to apply to law school and to meet face-to-face with admissions decision makers from UT and other law schools in the Southeast.”
Eric Mauldin, UT’s Phi Alpha Delta pre-law society president, encourages students who are thinking about law school to participate.
“The fair is a great way for all pre-law students to learn about law schools from around the country and to understand more about the admissions process. I have been to the last two fairs, and I learned much more about law schools than with any other method,” she said.
The workshop and recruitment fair are free, and no preregistration is necessary. The UT College of Law is located at 1505 W. Cumberland Ave., directly across the street from the University Center. Participants can park in the University Center garage for a reduced fee of $5 with a ticket validation received at the event registration desk.
This program is sponsored by the College of Law, UT Arts & Sciences Advising Services and the UT Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Society.
