Pre-Law Specialization Chicago Law School Forum


The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) annually sponsors a Law School Forum in Chicago, IL. The Forum provides an opportunity for prospective law students to visit with representatives from @ 160 law schools located in the U.S. and Canada. [For more details, visit the LSAC website:]

SVSU, under the auspices of the Office for Academic Affairs, provides annual financial support for a limited number of full-time SVSU students to attend the Forum in Chicago. The financial support includes lodging for three nights; AmTrak tickets; and a meal allowance for the selected students. While in Chicago, students will have an opportunity to visit any of the six Chicago area law schools, as well as attending the one-day forum.

[Typically, students depart from the Flint AmTrak station on a Thursday morning; visit one of the area law schools on Friday; attend the Forum on Saturday; and return to Flint on Sunday evening.]

This funding opportunity is open to all full-time SVSU students who have completed a minimum of 24 credit hours prior to the Fall term in which the Forum is scheduled.
