Have you ever considered law school? Unsure as to whether or not law school is right for you? Every year the Law School Admission Council hosts Law School Forums nationwide. These events are the best way to have your questions answered about the admission process, financial aid, the numerous fields of law, and more.

On Saturday, September 20, an LSAC Law School Forum will be held at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California. The main room will be packed with law school representatives, ready to share their knowledge and expertise with you. Feel free to walk along the various tables to learn more about the law schools you are interested in, peruse their materials, and hear firsthand accounts you could not find anywhere else.

In addition, all LSAC Law School Forums are home to a number of exclusive workshops. LSAC has reached out to their network of legal professionals and educators to secure an unbeatable lineup of speakers and panelists. An LSAC Law School Forum is the only place where you can hear directly from a member of the LSAT test development staff. Here is a full list of available workshops:
• About the LSAT
• Financing a Legal Education
• Diversity Information Panel
• The Application Process
• Why Law School?
• What Do Lawyers Do?
