Planning on being in the New York City area over break? You should consider signing up for the New York City Bar’s Annual LSAT/Law School Prep Series, set for January 7, 8 and 10. If you sign up by January 1, the cost is $5! (It only increases to $10 after January 1). The program was created to provide prospective law students with information on everything from preparing for the LSAT through being successful in the first year of law school. The program includes LSAT Preview Classes by several well-regarded test prep companies – as well as panels with admissions representatives and law students from regional law schools and a Networking Fair with free classes and material giveaways. It will be held at the NYC Bar Association Office, 42 West 44th Street.
