Admitted Students Day

The Office of Admissions invites all admitted students to attend an Admitted Students Day in March or April. As you begin the process of deciding where to commit to law school in the fall, we aim to provide useful information about life as a Carolina Law student. At Admitted Students Day, you can expect to:

  • Hear from current students about why they chose Carolina Law, how the law school has supported their academic and personal achievements, and what law school life is really like.
  • Explore Carolina Law’s unique curriculum strengths and enrichment opportunities, including centers and programsclinics and externships, and journal publications.
  • Learn the nuts and bolts of financing your legal education.
  • Meet members of Student Development, the Career Development Office, the Pro Bono Program, and Global Opportunities.
  • Talk with representatives from student organizations about getting involved in the Carolina Law community and how they balance academic work with extracurriculars.
  • Take a law school and library tour to see where you’ll be studying, going to class, and building your career for the next three years.
