VERMILLION, S.D. -- The University of South Dakota School of Law is hosting an open house on Wednesday, Feb. 27 for high school and college students interested in pursuing a career or degree in law.
Discover Law Day, which is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., includes a variety of activities designed to give students an inside look at the curriculum and faculty at the USD School of Law. Participants can choose which first-year class they’d like to observe from Civil Procedure or Criminal Procedure to Contracts; take part in a Q&A with current USD law students; and tour the School of Law and USD campus.
“Discover Law Day is a great opportunity for high school or college students to learn more about law school preparation, application and admission, and see firsthand the benefits of a law degree as an academic or career option,” said Tom Geu, interim law school dean. “It’s a good way to showcase our programs, our faculty and provide those attending with a unique learning experience.”
Discover Law Day is free and open to upper level high school and early college students. The event is presented by the USD School of Law with support from the Law School Admission Council’s DiscoverLaw.org Month program. Students interested in attending the open house are asked to RSVP to Tom.Sorensen@usd.edu no later than 4 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 25. Individual students are also encouraged to visit www.discoverlaw.org/register.asp to register for useful information about the law school admission process.
