Law School Personal Statement Workshop

Event Date: 
Wednesday, October 17, 2018
Time: 
4:00–5:30 p.m.
Location: 
103 BC Bank of America Building

After your LSAT score and your CGPA, the personal statement is probably the most important part of your law school application. Join us for a workshop to:

  • Get an inside look at what law schools want in a personal statement
  • Learn about the process of drafting a strong personal statement
  • Start the brainstorming process (if you haven't already) 
  • Engage in writing exercises to start or edit your personal statement

This workshop is appropriate regardless of where you are in the personal statement process.  We will not read and edit individual statements at the workshop but some of the exercises may help you with your editing process.

Workshop facilitators: 

Rachael Wiley, M.F.A., Assistant Teaching Professor of English
Kathy Garren, J.D. Pre-Law Adviser, Division of Undergraduate Studies
