October 14: SWAPLA Law School Admissions Caravan

What is it?

SWAPLA is the SouthWest Association of PreLaw Advisors. The annual Admissions Caravan is a traveling group of law school admissions representatives, and this year we've arranged a stop at Texas Tech.

Students:  Basically, attending this event is the equivalent of visiting nearly 100 law schools from across the entire country in a single afternoon.

Law Schools:  Last time we had more than 300 interested students meet up with your representatives.  This year, we've invited the whole region.  With over 1000 students who have identified themselves as potential law school students, we are excited to host your visit and help make these important introductions 

We are very excited to be able to offer this exciting opportunity to university students in the West Texas region. Make your plans now so that you don't miss out!
