The Center for Law, Justice & Culture encourages students to attend the Midwest Association of Pre-Law Advisors‘ (MAPLA) Virtual Law School Caravan on Wednesday, Oct. 28, from 6-9 p.m. Eastern Time, featuring more than 100 law schools from around the country!

“This virtual fair is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about different law schools across the region. Students will also have the opportunity to network with representatives from individual schools, much like they would normally be able to at Ohio University’s Law Fair,”said Pre-Law Advisor and President-elect of MAPLA Larry Hayman.

Admissions representatives will be in attendance to talk about the education their school can offer students, discuss admissions criteria, and answer questions.

The free event is open to all students and alumni from a college or university in the Midwest, regardless of major or year in school.
