Recently, we've been working on our fall recruiting travel schedule. Each fall, members of the Law School community travel around the country visiting schools and cities where we try to spread the word about our law school and law school in general.
The first thing we do is attend the LSAC Forums, which are held in ballrooms at hotels in large cities. The Forums have over 150 law schools in attendance, and they are a great place to pick up applications and materials, as well as ask many schools some basic questions. LSAC (the good people who oversee the LSAT...) also provide a series of 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 at the Forums, it is hard to have an in-depth conversation.
Next, we visit schools individually for law fairs. Law fairs are put on by a University's prelaw office, and are a smaller version of the LSAC Forum: a hundred or so schools, all in one big room, and all are there to answer questions and hand out materials. I highly recommend checking in with your prelaw office or the prelaw website at your nearest University to find a convenient school fair, as this is an easy way to check out law schools.
Finally, we visit schools individually or with a small group of other law schools. At these panel discussions, we give a general prelaw presentation, as well as an overview of our program. These sessions are a great way to learn in-depth about the application process, and our school. They are informal and relaxed, and we encourage questions and participation from the attendees. Check our schedule to see if we are coming to your school!
