LAW WEEK @ LVC
Constitution Day, Tuesday September 17th: 11am-12:30pm. Open Conversation with Bekah Saidman-Krauss, the Assistant Dean for Admissions at PSU Dickinson Law School in Carlisle. Suggested topics of recent constitutional interest include recent U.S. Supreme Court cases concerning same-sex marriage (Perry and Windsor), race (Fisher and Shelby County [Voting Rights Act]), and FISA surveilance (Clapper v. A.I.); (other potential topics that some have identified include Kane & PA-DOMA; Trayvon Martin; Snowden). After a 45 minute open conversation regarding these matters the balance of the time will be devoted to law school questions and a presentation on the PSU program.
Thursday September 19th: 11am-12:30pm Roundtable on Law School Admissions with senior representatves from Drexel and Widener law schools. (Further details to be announced.)
Three events of interest to law school applicants will take place in the course of
the coming week:

at Indiana Tech University will visit campus and will be able to join
students at lunch. Indiana Tech is a
brand new law school; they will take a close interest in applications from LVC students
& alumni. Dean Anderson visited the LVC campus last year
and was very impressed with the students she met on that occasion. This is a very good opportunity for LVC
students and alumni. Please email me as soon as possible to indicate
whether you would like to meet Dean Anderson and, if you do wish to meet her,
whether 12-1 might work with your schedule.
Second, the Philadelphia Law School Fair will be held next
Wednesday (10/16) at Drexel University;over 100 law schools will be represented; many will
offer application fee waivers. Several LVC students and alumni are planning to attend; car-pooling arrangements are being planned. Further details regarding the Philly law school
fair are available here.
