Plan on applying to law school in the next year or two? Come learn how to write a compelling law school personal statement. This session will be helpful for all those applying to law school over the coming year, regardless of whether you have started your personal statement or not. Come meet Jonathan Glick, Associate Director of Admissions at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law.  He will discuss what the committee is looking for when applications are reviewed and how to maximize your strengths and finesse your weaknesses to put together a comprehensive law school application package that connects with the committee.  Jonathan will also provide a workshop on how to craft a winning personal statement that stands out from the crowd. 

Topics to be covered include how the personal statement fits into your overall application, how to identify strong themes, how to structure your essay, and common mistakes to avoid. 

Those who have begun their personal statements are encouraged to bring a draft. Those who have not yet started their personal statements are encouraged to review the essay prompts from their target schools in order to discuss themes.
