Reach a verdict on law school
January 25, 2011
Spurred in part by a sluggish job market, more than 60,000 people took the Law School Admissions Test last year and are now weighing the pros and cons of a law degree. Scholars from Penn State Law will offer insights on four of the most asked-about fields in a series of panel discussions at the Law School. The events will also be available via live webcast.
The Experience Penn State Law series will kick off February 2 at 4 p.m. EST with Science and the Law featuring experts in environmental policy, biotechnology law, and health law and policy. Other panels include:
- Business and the Law on February 23;
- Human Rights and the Law on March 16; and
- Global Legal Practice on April 6.
“These topics are among the most popular and have tremendous potential to engage prospective law students who are interested both in whether law school is right for them and what types of career paths might be open to them,” said Assistant Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Jay Shively. “It’s really an exciting opportunity for undergraduate students and others considering law school to both connect with top scholars and ask the tough questions.”
Admissions advisors will also be on hand to answer questions at each event.
