Information Sessions

Prospective students are invited to register for a small-group information session. Information sessions are offered at the College of Law in DeKalb and in downtown Chicago at the Offices of the Illinois State Bar Association.


The DeKalb information session, held at the College of Law, consists of a brief admissions presentation followed by a tour which is led by a current law student. These sessions are offered at noon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
