Mark Your Calendars: Week of March 12

Pre-Law Events

Harvard Law School Junior Deferral Program Office Hours–Thursday, March 15 5-6 pm online. Harvard Law School recently began a program in which college juniors apply, and if accepted, they then enter law school 2+ years after graduating from college. Applicants must be graduating in Spring 2019 and commit to deferring their law school admission until at least 2 years after graduating from your undergraduate program. Applications are due April 1. HLS is hosting an online Info Session on March 15 to answer questions before the upcoming application deadline. Click here to register for the info session.

The College of Law invites pre-law students to serve as mock jurors for law students. Advanced Trial Advocacy trials will be held April 4,10,11, and 19 starting at 5 pm each night and lasting about 3 hours. Refreshments will be served. This is a great way to experience what it’s like to be on a jury, see what law students are doing, and get a taste of what trials are really like! Please email Thanin Stewart at indicating what day(s) you’d like to serve as a mock juror, or if you have any questions.

Taking a Gap Year (Or More) Before Law School Workshop–Thursday, March 29 at 5:00 pm in 514 Illini Union Bookstore Building

Are you considering working, volunteering, traveling, or doing something else before attending law school? If so, how can you use that time effectively to improve your applicant profile? Do you want to know more about going straight through to law school after undergrad? This event helps students explore different paths to law school. The panel will feature three current law students–two with work experience and one who went directly from undergrad to law school–to answer your questions and discuss the pros and cons of going straight to law school versus taking a gap year (or more) and working.
