COVID-19 Law School Forum Updates

How will COVID-19 affect the LSAC Law School Forums?

Last Updated April 17, 2020

As the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold, LSAC remains committed to supporting you along your legal education journey with your health and safety being of the utmost importance. LSAC’s annual Law School Forums are an important step in your journey because they give you the opportunity to connect face-to-face with representatives from over 100 law schools, ask experts your questions, and gather information about law school, the admission process, and the LSAT.

While we hope to be able to proceed with face-to-face forums, we will do so only if it is safe to do so and in accordance with public health guidance.

We have opened registration for the 2020 Washington, D.C., Law School Forum, taking place on Saturday, July 18, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Marriott Wardman Park. On June 10, guided by directives from federal and local authorities, and based on how many schools and candidates have registered to attend, we will make a final decision about whether to proceed with this forum.

Looking ahead, we plan to open registration for the rest of the forum season on Friday, July 10, but will continue to monitor the situation as that date nears and provide an update accordingly. Additionally, we are investigating the possibility of hosting virtual forums, so that everyone, schools and candidates alike, has a chance to attend.

We know that everyone who attends a forum this year will want to be extra careful. If social distancing guidelines remain, we will set up the exhibit halls and workshop rooms to create more space between people. If necessary, we will limit the number of schools and representatives who can register. Should that be the case, everyone will be notified accordingly.

Thank you for your understanding. If you would like us to keep you updated as this situation unfolds, please fill out the “Law School Forum Updates” form on this page.
