Admissions officer Tina Lagerstedt will be on campus to talk in depth about the resume portion of the law school application, as well as Harvard Law School's programs, admissions processes, and upcoming deadlines.
Founded in 1817, Harvard Law School is the oldest continuously operating law school in the United States and is home to the largest academic law library in the world. Located in historic Cambridge, Massachusetts, the school offers its students a challenging, supportive atmosphere and access to its unmatched array of course and academic offerings, a global alumni network, and a bustling campus life.
Approximately 1,990 students attend HLS each year, including 1,750 J.D.
students, 180 LL.M. students, and 60 S.J.D. candidates. The faculty includes more than 100 full-time professors and more than 150 visiting professors. The curriculum of more than 260 courses and seminars covers a broad range of traditional and emerging legal fields.
To guide students as they move through the three years of law school, HLS faculty has developed seven programs of study: Criminal Justice; International and Comparative Law; Law and Business; Law and Government; Law and History; Law and Social Change; and Law, Science, and Technology.
Students do not sign up for any program; nor should any student feel compelled to adhere to one. Instead, the programs of study reflect best advice from faculty about how to approach particular subjects and potential careers.

Professor David Gloman has partnered with Kurt Heidinger, director of the Biocitizen School, to create an art event that inspires the public to imagine the unique biocultural character of the Nonotuck biome (also known as the central Connecticut River Valley) by “re-presenting” the landscapes that Orra Hitchcock depicted in the mid 19th century. Professor Gloman has located the sites where they were painted and created his own painted landscape portraits of those sites. View Gloman and Hitchcock's illustrations together in Frost Library's Mezzanine Gallery from September 4 - October 29.
The opening reception will be on September 27 from 4:30 - 6 p.m. in the Center for Humanistic Inquiry (2nd Floor, Frost Library).
