January Open House: The Chicago-Kent Law School Experience

Saturday, January 25, 2020

9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Featuring law school mini-classes, tours and breakout sessions with current students

Two of the best ways to learn about a law school are to attend classes taught by the law school's faculty and to talk with current students. Our January Open House will provide you with both opportunities.

During the morning, you will have the opportunity to meet members of our nationally recognized faculty and to see them in action as you attend two law school mini-classes. The afternoon portion of the open house will feature breakout sessions with current students. Faculty, Admissions staff members, Career Services strategists and Financial Aid counselors will also be available to answer your questions. Law School tours will be provided.
