Learning about law schools

For the seventh year in a row, Indiana University Bloomington’s “Law Day” Oct. 25 will be the biggest in the U.S. It’s a day for those interested in going to law school to meet with school representatives and learn about applying to law school.

According to IU, a record number 121 law schools will take part this year, including the four law schools in Indiana.

It’s interesting that schools from as far away as California, Washington and New Hampshire consider this fair worthy enough of their time and resources to come. They must see strong potential or have had good results in finding applicants here in Indiana. With a down economy, more people may be interested in attending law school in order to prolong having to deal with finding a job or because they think their job prospects will increase with a law degree. Maybe the prospective students plan on moving to Nebraska, Washington, D.C., or Wisconsin where there is apparently a need for lawyers.

I’m curious – how valuable is this type of law fair? Did you take advantage of this one at IU or another law fair during your undergrad years?
