2017 SWAPLA LAW SCHOOL CARAVAN

The SWAPLA caravan includes law fairs at five major undergraduate institutions in the Texas. We hope that our established law fairs make your recruiting travel easier and more productive, allowing you to see the greatest numbers of students possible at our respective institutions. For your table, you are welcome to bring or send ahead brochures, bulletins, and school logo items to give to the students. Instructions for shipping items are included in the individual site listings on our web site. Our students and pre-law advisors look forward to seeing you at our fairs.

Questions regarding the caravan registration process should be directed to Karen SevernIf you need to edit or pay your registration for the 2017 Caravan, please go here. We struggled with finding adequate space to hold law fairs in some cities, which created the delay in having it available for registration. 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. For locations where sharing tables is possible, those schools who registered last will be the ones requested to share, space permitting. 

The SWAPLA Caravan no longer recommends specific hotels or provides bus transportation between schools. Traveling between cities can be done by air or car, or a combination of both. Estimated travel times have been included for your planning convenience.
