UT Law Fair | Oct. 26 from 11am-3pm in Texas Union Ballroom

UT's Law Fair is one of the largest school-sponsored law fairs in the nation. The Law Fair provides attendees with the opportunity to interact with 100+ law school admissions professionals from a variety of schools in a centralized setting. Whether your goal is to gather information about prospective law schools or connect with specific law school admissions professionals, UT's Law Fair is your opportunity to gain in-depth information about law schools that you can use to evaluate their programs. Offered only once a year, the Law Fair allows applicants to interact with admissions representatives, pick up brochures and applications, collect information about each program's admissions and financial aid process, and learn more about specific law school programs. It is very possible that the admissions representative that you meet at the Law Fair will be the same person who may read your application down the road. 

UT Law Fair is free and open to the public. Plan to bring a pen, notepad and your questions about law schools and their respective programs. Business casual dress is recommended.
