The Law School Expo is the largest pre-law event of the year. Representatives from law schools around the country  answer questions about their own law schools, questions about the application process in general, and questions about life as a law student. This also serves as a resource fair for pre-law students, where you can get information on LSAT prep options, gap year opportunities, financial planning for law school, and more. The Expo also includes various breakout sessions and a panel discussion.

Additionally, the University of Wisconsin Law School will also be hosted a Law School Open House from 8:30am-11am the morning of the Law School Expo. Please see more information about that event here.
