Three events of interest to law school applicants will take place in the course of
the coming week:
First, this Monday (10/14) Jessica Anderson JD, Assistant Dean for Law Admissions
at Indiana Tech University will visit campus and will be able to join
students at lunch. Indiana Tech is a
brand new law school; they will take a close interest in applications from LVC students
& alumni. Dean Anderson visited the LVC campus last year
and was very impressed with the students she met on that occasion. This is a very good opportunity for LVC
students and alumni. Please email me as soon as possible to indicate
whether you would like to meet Dean Anderson and, if you do wish to meet her,
whether 12-1 might work with your schedule.
Second, the Philadelphia Law School Fair will be held next
Wednesday (10/16) at Drexel University;over 100 law schools will be represented; many will
offer application fee waivers. Several LVC students and alumni are planning to attend; car-pooling arrangements are being planned. Further details regarding the Philly law school
fair are available here.
Third, the New York Law School Forum will be held on Friday
