Upcoming Webinars

LLM Admission Strategies
January 21, 2014
4:00 PM EST

This workshop explores the law school LL.M. admissions process: getting in and choosing the school that is right for you. If you are beginning to work on your admission application or are considering applying to law school for your LL.M. in the future, this is the program for you. Because the workshop focuses on the nuts and bolts of preparing an effective admission application, it is not designed for candidates who have already submitted an application for the next entering class.

The program covers:

  • How the admission process works;
  • How to prepare your application;
  • What admission committees evaluate;
  • Application strategies;
  • The importance of letters of recommendation;
  • How to approach the personal essay;
  • Dealing with potential weaknesses;
  • Avoiding admission mistakes; and
  • When to apply.

The webinars will last approximately 45 minutes followed by a chance to ask questions. You need to have a computer and speakers in order to hear the webinar.
