UT College of Law to Hold Admissions Workshop, Recruitment Fair

KNOXVILLE — Potential law school applicants in East Tennessee are invited to attend a Law School Admission Workshop and Recruitment Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 9, at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

“Anyone who is considering law as a career and is specifically interested in the law school admissions process should attend this event,” said Karen R. Britton, director of admissions, financial aid and the Bettye B. Lewis Career Center at UT’s College of Law.

Scheduled activities include:

Admission Workshop. Panelists will discuss preparing for law school as an undergraduate, the law school admission process and the LSAT from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Shiloh Room of the University Center. Britton will lead this session along with Catherine Anderson, assistant director of the College of Arts & Sciences advising services.

Q & A with Admissions Officers. Prospective students are invited to discuss the admissions process and seek advice from a panel of admissions officers from public and private law schools from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Shiloh Room of the University Center.

Recruitment Fair. Admissions representatives from law schools in the Southeast will meet with prospective students. Besides UT, participating law schools include the Universities of Alabama, Kentucky, Maryland, Memphis, Richmond and South Carolina; Georgia State University, Indiana University, Louisiana State University, Samford University, Vanderbilt University, Wake Forest University, Washington and Lee University; and Charleston, Mississippi, Nashville and Lincoln Memorial University law schools. The Recruitment Fair will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. in the College of Law Commons and Rotunda.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to apply to law school and to meet face to face with admissions decision makers from UT and other law schools in the Southeast,” Britton said.

UT’s Phi Alpha Delta pre-law society president, Stephen Smith, encourages students who are thinking about law school to participate.

“The law forum is the premiere event for any student aspiring to pursue a law degree. The wealth of information presented and provided is unbelievable. I cannot think of any other event that will prepare aspiring law students for every stage of the admissions process like this one.”

The UT College of Law is located at 1505 W. Cumberland Ave., directly across the street from the University Center. The workshop is free and no preregistration is necessary. Parking is available in the University Center Garage behind the University Center on Phillip Fulmer Way.

This program is sponsored by UT College of Law, UT Arts & Sciences Advising Services, UT Career Services and the UT Phi Alpha Delta Pre-Law Society.
