FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The nation’s largest university law fair will take place Monday, Sept. 15, at Indiana University Bloomington's Indiana Memorial Union. More than 120 law schools are registered to attend.
The day will begin with a panel discussion featuring the IU Maurer School of Law’s director of admissions, Janet Hein; Collins Byrd, dean of admissions for the University of Iowa College of Law; and Pamela Bloomquist, dean of admissions and financial aid for Loyola University Chicago School of Law. The deans will discuss what really works on a law school application and will answer attendees’ questions about the application and admission process.
The panel discussion will take place from 9 to 10:45 a.m. at the Whittenberger Auditorium. Attendees will then interact one-on-one with law school representatives at the Law School Fair, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Alumni Hall.
Representatives from the Indiana Conference for Legal Education Opportunity will also be available at Law Day. They will share information on programs such as stipends and preparatory institutes that assist Indiana first-generation, minority or low-income college graduates who plan to attend law school.
Law Day is free and open to the public. Students, alumni and community members at all stages of the application process will benefit from the programs and activities offered.
Law Day is organized by the IU Health Professions and Prelaw Center and is sponsored by the Midwest Association of Pre-Law Advisors as part of its 2014 Caravan series. This is the 10th consecutive year in which Law Day at IU Bloomington has been the largest collegiate law fair in the U.S.
The Health Professions and Prelaw Center, a program of the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, provides advising and other services for students who want to pursue careers in law, medicine and other health professions. Students considering careers in these professions must excel academically and plan carefully.
The center works closely with IU students throughout their undergraduate years, and with IU alumni, to help them become thoughtful, well-prepared, competitive applicants to professional programs. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 812-855-1873.
