UT Law Fair

UT Austin will not host an in-person Law School Fair during Fall 2020.

Aspiring law students are encouraged to attend the Law School Admission Council’s digital law forums, which will be held on Sep. 26, Oct. 13, Nov. 4, and Dec. 12 (2-6pm CDT) with various admissions-related workshops (synchronous and asynchronous) starting an hour earlier. The same information will be available at all four Forums. Attendees do not have to attend the entire forum; you may drop-in as is convenient for your schedule. 

In this virtual space, applicants and prospective law students will be able to ask questions and: 

  • speak one-on-one with law school admissions representatives and deans from 200+ law schools,
  • ask questions about financial aid,
  • learn about the LSAT directly from test developers, and more.
Registration is FREE, however, attendees must register at least three days in advance of the LSAC Forum.

Additional information about the LSAC Digital Forums for students can be found here
