Those planning to apply to law schools this spring or fall should seriously consider attending this free event, hosted by the Pre-Law Club, as virtually all law schools require a personal statement from applicants. At the seminar, an expert from Kaplan will explain what should and should not be included in such personal statements so that students can increase their chances of getting into the school of their choice.

Although this workshop is specifically aimed at personal statements written for law schools, all students unsure of what to include in a personal statement of any kind are welcome to participate.

For more information on this or any of the Pre-Law Club's events, please contact Holly Johnston at hej3@uakron.edu.
