Every quarter, Legal Pathways offers a series of workshops to support students interested in pursuing law school. To register for a workshop, please check the Legal Pathways Event Calendar. To make sure you get email notifications about upcoming workshops, make sure to sign up for our student listserve!
Covering application timelines, the application process itself, and the most common question that come up about law school (including cost, admissions statistics, and how the process actually works) this is a great session for anyone considering applying. We highly encourage all students considering applying to attend and then follow up with an individual advising appointment with Legal Pathways.
Tell Your Story: Writing Your Personal Statement
The most important piece of writing in your application will no doubt be your personal statement. This session covers personal statement best practices, common pitfalls to avoid, and how to begin thinking through your personal statement topic and structure.

Ask Me Anything: Law School Admissions
Every quarter we host a variety of “Ask Me Anything” sessions with admissions officers from PNW law schools. These informal sessions are a great way to learn about the schools and talk directly with the admissions office about the process!
