Patriot Pre-Law Program Workshop

Professor Phillip Mink J.D., Director of Pre-Law Advising and Assistant Professor for the Schar School of Policy and Government, is running a workshop on personal statements.

When: Tuesday, March 5th from 5-6 pm

Where: HUB 1

Why: Professor Mink says,

“Most law schools don’t interview, so the statement is your best chance to make a case for yourself. The problem is that students aren’t trained for this kind of writing. Law schools usually don’t need to know why you want to become a lawyer. Instead they want to know what kind of person you are. As the University of Chicago Law School put it, a “personal statement is supposed to be personal! We want to hear about you, what makes you tick, what motivates you, and what inspires you.”

In effect, law schools are asking for an immaculately written mini-autobiography that tells a compelling story in one single-spaced page. This is no easy task. But we can help by walking you through the entire process of writing a personal statement, from selecting a topic to polishing a final draft.”
