Deans and admissions directors from eight law schools in the northeast will discuss the law school admissions process tomorrow evening in the auditorium of Kirby Hall of Civil Rights.

The Lafayette College Law Forum will begin at 6 p.m. with a reception. The panel presentation will start at 6:45 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session about the law school experience. The event will conclude with one-on-one discussions in the lobby.

Free and open to the campus community and students of the Lehigh Valley Association of Independent Colleges, the event is sponsored by the Legal Professions Program.

The panel will include Stephen Brown, director of financial aid, Fordham University School of Law; Kathryn Espiritu, assistant director of admissions, New York Law School; William Perez, dean of admissions, Seton Hall University School of Law; Anita Walton, director of admissions, The State University of New Jersey-Rutgers School of Law, Newark; Donna Lamborne, associate director of admissions, Temple University School of Law; Derek Meeker, director of admissions, University of Penn Law School; David P. Pallozzi, director of admissions, Villanova University School of Law; and Eric Kniskern, director of admissions, Widener University, Harrisburg campus.

The panelists will explain how admissions committees operate and how they would go through the admissions process at their own school.

”We’ll learn what factors help or hurt an applicant’s chance of admission,” note event organizers. “We believe that the law school forum is one of the best ways for a prospective law student to acquire a better understanding of the nature of a law school education as well as the atmosphere each particular law school has to offer.”
