LSAC’s Law School Forums offers prospective law students with a free convenient opportunity to learn about multiple law schools in one centralized setting. Candidates can connect in-person or virtually with law school admission professionals from 100+ law schools. The Forum provides students with a great opportunity to ask questions to admissions reps about financial aid, inquire about programs unique to each law school, learn about the LSAT directly from LSAC’s test developers, and more. Applicants and prospective law students will be able to speak one-on-one with law school admissions representatives and deans.  These forums are open to anyone who is interested in attending an ABA accredited law school in the US and/or Canada. 

If you’re applying this cycle (hoping to start in 2023), visit law schools to ask application specific questions (recommended caravan & forums to attend – October 22nd, November 3rd & November 5th)

If you’re not applying this cycle, use this opportunity to familiarize yourself with the admissions process generally by attending the workshops and exhibit booths (recommended caravan and forums to attend – November 3rd, November 5th, November 19th, or February 3rd)

The LSAC Digital Law School Forum will have several synchronous and asynchronous workshops and resource booths to address your inquiries. 
This would be a great time to get an overview of the admissions process
Events are free (you must register at least two days prior). Drop-in attendance is encouraged as law schools will be present during the entire duration of the Law School Forum, so attendees do not have to be present at the beginning.
It can be especially helpful to connect with admissions representatives since they are the experts on their law school and can answer your application-specific questions. 
All the ABA law schools will be present at digital forums so you can talk to all the law schools you are interested in because they’ll be in one convenient location.

Applying to law school would not have been possible without the help of Professional School Advising. Their personalized advice and endless support played a major factor in my attending professional school.
