General Overview: Preparing for Law School at W&M

This general information sheet provides a quick overview for students interested in attending law school after completing a bachelor's degree.  The menu to the left has very specific information to answer as many of your questions as possible.  Before requesting an appointment, please review the website to see if your questions are answered here.  Many of them should be.

Law School Application Workshop 

As you are beginning the law school application process or if you are planning on attending law school at some point after graduation, please attend one of the application workshops, held once a semester. The workshop for the fall 2015 semester will be held on Tuesday, September 8, from 5:30-7:30pm in Morton 202.

These workshops are designed for students actively involved in the application process.  I suggest that juniors who are interested in applying to law school attend the January workshop during their junior year, or one that will be held in the fall semester of the senior year (typically held in early September).  If seniors have not attended one of the workshops prior to the fall of the senior year, they should attend the September workshop.  As the workshop is aimed at students actively involved in the application process, it is not recommended for first or second year students, or even the fall semester of the third year.  Please also subscribe to the prelaw advising listserv so that I can email information about this and other law-related events on campus.

If you are an incoming freshman or transfer student, I encourage you to attend one of the pre-law sessions held during orientation.
