How to Write Personal Statements for Law School Applications, presented by University of Chicago & University of Michigan

Attend this combined information session to hear from University of Chicago Law School and University of Michigan Law School admissions representatives about their respective programs and admissions processes. Pizza will be served!

The University of Chicago Law School occupies a unique niche among this country's premier law schools. Located on a residential campus in one of America's great cities, Chicago offers a rigorous and interdisciplinary professional education that blends the study of law with the humanities, the social sciences, and the natural sciences. Students, faculty and staff form a small, tightly knit community devoted to the life of the mind. Learning is participatory. Chicago does not seek to impose a single viewpoint or style of thought on its students. Instead, its faculty exposes students to contrasting views, confident in students' abilities to choose their own paths.

The University of Michigan Law School, one of the oldest law schools in the nation, was founded in 1859, and is now housed in the Cook Quadrangle on the University of Michigan’s central Ann Arbor campus. Unlike other highly selective law schools established in that era, admission was never restricted to the privileged. The School has a sizable and diverse faculty, with many preeminent in their fields. The careers of alumni also speak eloquently to the strength of the School; its graduates are leaders serving with distinction in the public, private, and academic sectors in this nation and beyond.
