UT Law Week

Liberal Arts Career Services created Law Week to help students learn more about the legal profession and gain insight on how to prepare for the law school application process. Please take advantage of these opportunities to explore various law schools, learn more about their admissions process, and see if law school might be right for you.

Whether this is your first introduction to law, a senior ready to apply (or somewhere in between), all students, regardless of major, from UT Austin and other colleges/universities in the region, are encouraged to attend.

Law Fair

UT Law Fair: October 20, 2016, 12 pm – 3 pm | Texas Union Ballroom

UT Law Fair is an annual event that brings representatives from 100+ law schools to campus to recruit UT students. UT Law Fair is one of the largest school-sponsored law fairs in the nation! This is a unique opportunity to learn a great deal about many different law schools all in one day. Oftentimes, the person at the booth is the same person who will be reading your application down the road! Law Fair is free and open to the public. Business casual dress is recommended.
