Admissions Post-COVID

Law schools have seen a surge in applications, making it increasingly more challenging to get into law school. Find out if this will continue and what it means for pre-law students.

This one-day summit for pre-law advisors is hosted by preLaw Magazine and features the leading voices in legal education.

Serious pre-law students look to law school as a pathway to change, and they need your help selecting the best school, getting in, and preparing for their desired career.

This one-day virtual summit will bring you up-to-speed on the latest developments in law school admissions and curricular changes. Plus, you will have the opportunity to ask the questions that matter the most to you.

When students come back in the fall, you will be ready to answer their questions.
