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 into Dallas/Ft. Worth area and using DFW area as a travel base. From DFW or DAL, you can drive to UT Dallas (30 min), UT Arlington (30 min), Baylor (1.75-2 hours) and University of Oklahoma (2.5-3 hours). You can also catch quick flights from DFW or DAL to Texas Tech (LBB) and Hendrix College (LIT). Another alternative to driving to OU is taking the VonLane, which is a bus that connects DFW to OKC (3-3.5 hours).
For SWAPLA Part II, we recommend flying into SAT for UTSA (30 min) and driving to TX State (1-1.5 hours). Reps may stay in San Marcos or continue driving to AUS (.75-1 hour). UT Austin to Texas A&M Univ. (1.75-2 hours). Texas A&M is a short drive to Houston (1.5-2 hours).
Questions regarding the caravan registration process should be directed to Caravan Coordinator, Hong Tran Escobar. Questions regarding caravan payment should be directed to SWAPLA’s Treasurer, Barbara Kirby We are excited to see you this fall!
