|The Admissions Office is seeking law students to assist with our January Open House on Saturday, January 7, 2012. Volunteers are requested as follows:
Check-In and Welcome – 11:00 am – 12:30 pm: One or two students are needed to assist with check-in of our guests. This will involve distributing information packets, shaking hands, smiling, and being friendly.
Student/Alumni Panel – 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm: A mix of full-time and part-time students is needed for a 30-minute panel discussion about life as a law student. Most of the people in attendance at this event will be applying for admission to the fall 2012 entering class, so their level of familiarity with law school will likely be fairly low. This panel is about the basics – how much do you study per week, where do you live, how does law school affect your relationship with your wife/husband/family, what you like about law school, what you don’t like, etc. Each panelist will have 3-5 minutes to speak individually, and there will be approximately 5-10 minutes for questions from the audience.
Building Tours – 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm: Several students are needed to guide 20-30 minute building tours. If you have never given a tour of the building before, don’t worry – I will provide you with notes to help you.
If you are available to help, please e-mail Ivy Washington-Marshall ’09(email@example.com) at your earliest opportunity.
The Admissions Office has historically received a tremendous amount of support from the student body for our events. Your continued assistance is extremely important in making these open houses successful. Thank you so much for your help, and we appreciate your support!
