Law School Fair

Law School Fair Save the Date October 5 2023



Attending a Law Fair

Attending a law fair provides an excellent and unique opportunity to learn more about law schools from around the country.  At a law fair you can:

  • Gather information about law schools and graduate programs that interest you.
  • Meet the people who will be reading your law school applications and make a good first impression.
  • Discover new law schools that would be a good fit for you.
  • Talk with admissions professionals about what qualities they seek in a candidate.

Make a Plan!

To maximize your law fair opportunity, take steps to prepare in advance and create an event day plan.  To assist you in your preparations, we have created a brief video with tips and suggestions:

  • Know who’s coming! Review the list of schools attending this year’s Illinois Law School Fair and create a priority list of schools you would like to speak with! 

    Essential Event Day Information:

    • Time Commitment:  It is not necessary for you to attend the entire law fair.  We welcome you to stop by for 5 minutes to the whole 4 hours.  Whatever amount of time you have, be sure to stop by! 
    • Attire:  Business casual or smart casual is recommended.  You will likely be walking around and on your feet, be sure to wear comfortable shoes!
    • I-Cards:  The Law Fair is open to all, however, UIUC students will be asked to present their I-Card at the registration table.  Please be sure to have your I-card on hand as you approach the check-in table. 
    • Resumes: This is an opportunity for you to collect information and materials from the law schools you are interested in, law school representatives will not be accepting resumes or reviewing documents at the fair.

Pre-Law Advising Services invites you to attend the Law Admission Panel on October 5, 2023, at 3:30 pm at the Illini Union, Room 104.
