Prospective Student Open Houses

We encourage prospective students to visit the Law School to experience what makes it such a special place.  The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid will be holding two prospective student open houses this fall on the following dates:

The program for the Open House, which usually runs from 9:00am to 1:00pm will give you a glimpse into life at the Law School: you will attend a class, meet with students, faculty, and staff, and take a tour of the school. Members of the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid will be available to answer any questions you have about applying for admission to the Law School or about the Law School in general.  

Registration for our November Open House has closed.  If you are interested in attending, please send an email to Liz Boyna,, to inquire about any additional spots for Monday's open house.

For prospective students unable to join us for one of our Open Houses, we still encourage you to visit us at any time when school is in session. Learn more about how to plan your visit to the Law School.

Online Admissions Webinars

We understand that not everyone will have the opportunity to visit us on campus or meet with us during one of our recruitment trips.  Therefore, the Admissions Office will be hosting a series of webinars via Adobe Connect this year.  Each online session will be facilitated by an admissions officer.  Participants will be able to submit their questions in real time and prior to the event.  

This year's admissions webinars will be held on the following dates:

All webinars will take place at 12:00pm CST.  Due to size constraints, we will only be able to host up to 100 students during each online webinar.  Therefore, don't delay in signing up for one of our webinars this year.  To register for one of our webinars, complete the Admissions Webinar Registration Form.
