Rutgers School of Law–Newark, Seton Hall University School of Law, Rutgers School of Law–Camden, and the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) will host the first-ever New Jersey Law School Day on Saturday, February 27, 2010 in Newark, New Jersey. The program is part of DiscoverLaw.org month.
DiscoverLaw is an LSAC initiative to encourage racially and ethnically diverse college students to discover career opportunities in law. The DiscoverLaw.org website provides students with resources, tips and tools on how to become a competitive law school applicant. The New Jersey Law School Day program was designed by the three New Jersey law schools to provide an opportunity for diverse students to learn from current law students, admissions officers, faculty, and pre-law advisors about how to choose a path as an undergraduate that will help them succeed. While all undergraduates are invited to attend New Jersey Law Day, the program may particularly help students from diverse backgrounds who are in their freshman or sophomore year to begin thinking about law school.
A schedule of the day can be found below. Morning sessions will be held at the Rutgers–Newark Campus. (Directions: http://law.newark.rutgers.edu/about-school/visiting-us). Participants will attend the afternoon sessions at the Seton Hall Law Campus, walking distance from Rutgers–Newark. Tours of both schools will be part of the program, along with a virtual tour presentation of the Rutgers–Camden Campus.
