On-Campus Events for 2018-19

J.D. Admissions Workshop

Date: Saturday, October 13, 2018
Time: 10:00am – 12:00pm

An in-depth workshop on the admissions process and strategies for constructing a strong application.

Thinking About Law School?

The law school application process can be both exciting and overwhelming. What do you need to do to apply? What should you write in your personal statement? How do you choose a law school? Chicago-Kent’s workshop will answer your questions about the admissions process and provide you with insights into what schools are looking for in law school candidates.


November Open House: Preparing for a Legal Career

Date: Saturday, November 10, 2018
Time: 9:00am – 2:00pm

Featuring a faculty and student panel discussion and law school tour


Law students must not only know the theory of law but also master the practice of law. That’s why Chicago-Kent puts an emphasis on gaining real-world experience. Each of the three years of law school provides opportunities that develop your practical legal skills. These range from our renowned three-year legal research and writing program to the C-K Law Group — our in-house, teaching law firm — to the Praxis Certificate Program, which guides you through an experience-based course of study that exposes you to the core competencies required of successful lawyers.

At this open house, you will learn about the extraordinary opportunities available at Chicago-Kent to gain experience in settings where theory and practice intersect. You’ll also learn about the law school admissions process and gain insight into how to prepare a strong application. Faculty, students and staff will be available to meet with you during the opening reception. Tours of the law school will be available following the program.


February Open House: The Chicago-Kent Law School Experience

Date: Saturday, February 2, 2019
Time: 9:00am – 2:00pm

Featuring law school mini-classes, tours and breakout sessions with current students


Two of the best ways to learn about a law school are to attend classes taught by the law school’s faculty and to talk with current students. Our January Open House will provide you with both opportunities.

During the morning, you will have the opportunity to meet members of our nationally recognized faculty and to see them in action as you attend two law school mini-classes. The afternoon portion of the open house will feature breakout sessions with current students. Faculty, Admissions staff members, Career Services strategists and Financial Aid counselors will also be available to answer your questions. Law School tours will be provided.
