Congratulations, you’ve decided to go to law school! Now it’s time to think about where to go. This session will guide you through a list of factors to consider—a school’s bar passage rate, job placement rate, starting salaries, and scholarship opportunities—as you narrow down your list of schools and determine the ones that meet your needs. We will discuss where to access data on law school costs, employment outcomes, and academic fit. And, we’ll walk you through two AccessLex Institute tools that can help you take a data-based approach to finding the law schools that offer what you want and need in your law school experience.
It can be difficult for undergraduate students to figure out their next steps in the law school process. If you are interested in learning more about law school, the Belmont College of law has several upcoming Preview Days that are hosted both in-person and virtually.
Preview Days are a great way for prospective students to learn more about the law school application process, hear from Admissions professionals about our strong program, speak with current law students, and receive a tour of our beautiful building.
Preview Day dates range from November 11th through February 17th, and are a mix of in-person and virtual events.
Whenever you make a big financial commitment like attending law school, it’s important to understand what you’re planning to get out of it. A legal education can pay tangible and intangible dividends over your lifetime. In this session, we’ll discuss how to calculate your law school ROI and share resources that can help you optimize it.
The law school admission process can seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. Once you’ve identified your target schools, being strategic and thoughtful in applying is the best way to increase your chances of receiving an acceptance letter. In this session, we’ll review the admissions landscape and the essential components of a successful law school application, including law school selection and the importance of timing.
When it comes to your law school budget, the most important step for saving more is borrowing less. But financial growth during and after law school also means managing credit, understanding loan repayment options, tracking debt, and planning for future expenses like the bar exam. In this session, you’ll walk through each of these items and gain access to spending plan worksheets and other tools to stay on track!
This virtual JD recruitment event is hosted by NC State University, Wake Forest University, UNC Chapel Hill, and UNC-Wilmington.
