We have been working on our 2007 recruiting travel schedule. Each fall members of the Law School community travel around the country visiting schools and cities where we spread the good word about the Law School and the law school experience in general.
One of the first things we do is attend the LSAC Forums, which are usually held in ballrooms at hotels in large cities. The Forums have over 150 law schools represented and they are a great place to pick up materials and to gather answers to your basic questions from many schools all in one stop. LSAC (which also lists the full range of recruiting events) also provides information sessions at the Forums about all aspects of the admissions process. The Forums are a great place to meet someone from our office but because of the large number of people it is hard to have in-depth conversations.
You might also consider attending one of the school-specific fairs, usually hosted by an individual university's prelaw office. The school fairs are smaller versions of the Forums, with about a hundred schools represented, gathered in one large room and ready to provide you with materials and answer some simple questions. I highly recommend checking with your prelaw office or the prelaw website at your nearest university to find a convenient school fair. These individual school fairs are an easy to check out numerous law schools all in one spot.
Finally we visit schools on our own or with a small group of other law schools. At these panel discussions we give a general prelaw presentation and an overview of our program. These sessions are a great way to learn more detailed information about the application process and our school. They are informal, relaxed and interactive -- questions and participation from attendees are encouraged!
