School of Law to Host Minority Law Day Event
Posted December 19, 2011
Western New England University will host a workshop on minority and diversity issues with the application process for law school on Saturday, January 21 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Blake Law Center. This event is free and open to the public but reservations are required. Lunch will be provided.
The focus of the workshop is to educate minority and diversity students about the law school application process and to answer frequently asked questions. GLBT and non-traditional students will also benefit from this program. Participants will hear from current and former law students, as well as admissions professionals from the Western New England University School of Law, Boston University School of Law, New England Law Boston, and University of Connecticut School of Law. Topics covered will include résumés, letters of recommendation, personal statements, internships, and the Law School Admission Council (LSAC). In addition, a KAPLAN representative will give information on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and administer a free practice LSAT to participants.
Anyone interested in law school is encouraged to attend, regardless of where they are in the application process or where they plan to apply. To make a reservation or to obtain more information on Minority Law Day, visit www.law.wne.edu/minoritylawday.
