How to Write Personal Statements for Law School Application, presented by University of Chicago, University of Michigan, and University of Texas

Attend this combined information session to hear from admissions representatives at University of Chicago Law School, University of Michigan Law School, and the University of Texas at Austin School of Law, about their respective programs and admissions process applications. Together, they’ll also shed light on how to write personal statements for law school applications, so that attendees might get a better sense of how to put their best foot forward in this process.

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.

Texas Law is one of the most selective premier and public law schools in the country – each year receiving over 5,000 applications from around the globe to enroll an incoming class of around 300 students. Its three-year Juris Doctor program is intense and transformative. Students gain hands-on experience through advanced training in simulated settings via the advocacy and legal writing programs, and they step into the lawyer role as they work on real-world cases and projects through clinics, internships and pro bono work.

“Do Things to Images”: An Exhibition by Odette England

Do Things to Images presents for the first time a selection of photographs from 2014 to 2019 by the artist Odette England. It includes images from her newest series Love Notes.

England’s parents’ former dairy farm, and the archive of snapshots her family made there, serve as raw material for England’s practice. Many of her photographs are unique pieces. By mixing preciousness with low-fi, unrepeatable processes, England highlights the infidelity of memory.

This exhibition includes prints from negatives that England buried and then dug up, and hand-torn paper prints. It features pages ripped from family photo albums, and vintage snapshots that have been hole-punched, among other works. Her need to cut, crop, sand, fold and otherwise manipulate photographs is in contrast to the French meaning of her name, Odette, “Lover of Home.”

Join Odette England for a lecture and the opening of her exhibition on Thursday, Sept. 19, at 4:30 p.m. in Pruyne Lecture Hall, 115 Fayerweather.
