In the 2012-2013 academic year, more than 139,000 students were enrolled in roughly 200 U.S. law schools according to a report issued by the Wall Street Journal. Fierce competition at the nation’s top schools remains a concern among applicants, which is why the College of Arts and Sciences (A&S) is teaming up with Syracuse’s College of Law and SU Career Services to host Law Week 2015. 

The five-day initiative, which runs from Monday, Sept. 28 to Friday, Oct. 2, will consist of more than half a dozen events, aimed at helping Syracuse undergraduates prepare to apply to and enroll in law school.

“Applying to law school can be overwhelming to say the least,” says Kandice Salomone, associate dean of advising and career services in A&S. “We hope our programming will help quell students’ fears about the process and prepare them to successfully apply to and enroll in the law school of their choice.”
