Deciding whether or not to attend law school is a difficult choice. It’s even more difficult if you’ve never set foot in a law school and have no idea what to expect. This is where the Women’s Law Student Association at the UT College of Law can help.

On Friday, Feb. 24, the association is hosting “A Day in the Life of a Law Student” from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Law Center.

The program is designed to familiarize those individuals who are entertaining the idea of becoming an attorney with law school.

“A Day in the Life of a Law Student” will feature:

• A mock class that will introduce what can be expected from most first-year law courses;

• The opportunity to question current law students about their experiences; and

• A tour of the Law Center.

In addition, the UT College of Law’s Trial Advocacy team will demonstrate a mock trial at the program. Students join the Trial Advocacy team to practice litigation techniques, including how to speak to juries and examine witnesses, and to compete with teams from other schools.

Representatives from the Admissions Office and the Office of Professional Development will be available to answer questions and discuss services available to students at the College of Law and the application process.

Complimentary breakfast and lunch will be provided by the UT College of Law.

Individuals who wish to attend should RSVP with “A Day in the Life” in the subject line to wlsa@utoledo.edu.
