Personal Statement Workshop

Tuesday, September 10, 2019

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Get help with your personal statement for law school applications at our Personal Statement Workshop September 10 at 6:30pm. Jim Hohenbary, director of Nationally Competitive Scholarships, and Tracey Lee, Pre-Law Coordinator, will guide you through exercises to help you make the most of your two pages by developing your ideas and cultivating your story. Come prepared to discuss your experiences and workshop your writing with other students.

Bring a draft of your personal statement (no matter how rough). If you haven't finished writing, bring a list of your legal experiences, anecdotes about how your thoughts about the law has evolved, and a plan of what you want to convey to your law schools. The goal of this session is to provide you the tools to complete or improve your draft.
