All of us in the Admissions Office know how important the law school admissions process is to our applicants, and we take every aspect of their experience extremely seriously. While much of our work is invisible to the applicant, we work as a team to make sure our prospective students are treated with courtesy and care.

Meet us on "the road"

This fall, the Michigan Law School admissions staff would love to meet you and answer your questions live! We are offering a variety of ways for you to learn more about the admissions process and the Law School.

First, we are hosting online workshops on the following topics:

  • Application process: what you need to submit, when to apply, and what our team does after it receives an application
  • Personal statement: how application readers evaluate the personal statement, common mistakes to avoid (and what to do instead)
  • Financial aid: the types of financial aid available, factors to consider with debt management (including loan repayment assistance)

If you’re interested in attending any of these workshops, please register here, and we’ll send you an email with details about how to attend. We ask that you register for only one time slot for each workshop topic.

Our admissions counselors will also be hosting online, general question-and-answer drop-in sessions. The sessions are casual and informal, and you're welcome to enter and exit a session any time during the hour. You can register for a drop-in session here at any point before a session is scheduled to begin. (Alternatively, for information about an individual appointment (online or in-person) or tour (in-person only), please refer to this page.)

Finally, over the course of the fall we will be participating in a variety of in-person and virtual events hosted by a number of organizations; the full schedule is below. If you would like us to consider adding an event that your school or organization is hosting, please contact us at law.jd.admissions@umich.edu or 734.764.0537. We'll continue to update this page with events throughout the season.
