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, 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 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.
