SouthWest Association of PreLaw Advisors

The Southwest Association of Pre-Law Advisors (SWAPLA) is a professional support organization serving both faculty and staff of colleges and universities in Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. We sponsor the annual caravan of law school fairs and a pre-law advisors conference with programs to share information about pre-law advising. We are one of several regional “APLAs” across the nation; these APLAS, in turn, come together with the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) to form the Pre-Law Advisors National Council (PLANC). SWAPLA not only has delegates on PLANC, but several SWAPLA members also serve in leadership positions in PLANC. 

The 2017 SWAPLA Caravan (Oct. 23-28, 2017)


The registration for the 2017 SWAPLA Law School Caravan is closed and we are no longer accepting registrations. The 2017 SWAPLA Caravan is FULL. Here is a tentative schedule.

Stay tuned for updates regarding shipping and travel information. Thank you!


We struggled with finding adequate space to hold law fairs in some cities, which created the delay in having it available for registration. If you need to edit or pay your registration for the 2017 Caravan, please go here. 

Please note that in Dallas, we will be splitting the event into halves. Registrants may only attend one half of the Dallas stop! Please indicate your choice of late morning or early afternoon for the Dallas stop.

Some venues are unable to hold 100 law schools so where sharing tables is possible, those who register last will be the ones to share. That way you will know ahead of time.
