The fair that has become an integral part of the program features student preparation and the program is known for having students attend a wide variety of state, regional, and Ivy League law schools.
This year's fair will be held practically due to the pandemic, but it will be just as dynamic with the participation of more than 90 law schools. To attend the fair, students must register and create their schedules through the virtual fair platform called Handshake. By creating schedules, students can meet one-on-one with representatives and attend group sessions.
This year, Tuskegee alumnus and Baltimore City State Attorney Marilyn Mosby '02 will kick off the fair with a keynote address titled 'Black Law Issues.' Mosby received a BA in political science and later attended Boston College Law School.
“Our trade shows have been a great success and have grown in recent years. We started with a fair of about 30 schools and the number has grown to more than 90, ”said Shenita Brazelton, associate professor of political science and co-advisor on pre-law. “We have added other events that took place during the fair, such as the luncheon honoring attorney Fred Gray, an LSAC forum, and an HBCU law school forum, just to name a few. We will continue to grow our fair as a pre-law program grows. ”
The law school fair will give students a unique opportunity to speak with representatives to learn more about their programs. Students can ask questions they can't find an answer to just by browsing a website. Due to the large number of law schools they attend, students may also discover law schools that they were previously unaware of but could be a perfect fit. Prior to the law fair, students can attend a virtual "Law School Fair Prep Session" on February 3 at 6 pm CST via Zoom. During this session, teachers will discuss ways that students can prepare for the fair so that they can make the most of their time. The session will train students on how to research schools beforehand, ask thoughtful questions, and advise on appropriate clothing to wear.
