Caravan of Law School Advisors Stops at Texas Tech

Written by Sarah Whetstone

Prospective law students get a glimpse of school after undergraduate degree.

The Southwest Association of Prelaw Advisors, a traveling group of diverse law school admissions departments, will convene from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m. Oct. 27 in the Student Union ballroom at Texas Tech University to provide information to students interested in studying law.

Students from Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico will be able to visit and explore nearly 70 law schools from coast to coast without even leaving Lubbock.

“Representatives use this event as a recruitment opportunity,” said Jamie Hansard, assistant director of advising. “They will be in attendance to meet with students and offer guidance about the admissions process and answer questions pertaining to their respective school of law.”

Students are encouraged to dress professionally and bring several copies of a resume as representatives could be part of the admissions committee of their institutions. Each school will have a table set up and people available to speak with students about their respective school’s philosophy, programs, acceptance rate and campus environment.
