The SWAPLA caravan includes law fairs at major undergraduate institutions in Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. We hope that our law fairs make your recruiting travel easier and more productive, allowing you to see the greatest numbers of students possible at our respective institutions. Our students and pre-law advisors look forward to seeing you each fall. This year, the SWAPLA Caravan is pleased to partner with nine schools in three states, many of which are top law school feeders: UT (#4), TAMU (#9), Univ. of OK (#43), Texas Tech (#57) and UTSA (#83).
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.
For SWAPLA Part I, we recommend flying from Hendrix College (LIT) to Texas Tech (LBB) to OU (OKC) and then driving 2.5-3 hours from OU to UT Dallas (DFW) and another 2 hours to Baylor (Waco). From Baylor, one could fly out of either DFW/DAL (2 hours north of Waco) or Austin – AUS (1.5-2 hours south of Waco).
For SWAPLA Part II, we recommend flying into IAH and driving to Texas A&M. From TAMU, drive to San Marcos (approx. 2.5-3 hours), then San Antonio (approx. 1 hour), then Austin (approx. 1.5 hours) and then back to Houston (about 2.5-3 hours) for the Forum.
