Midwest Association of Pre-Law Advisors

Law School Caravan 2013

Each fall MAPLA sponsors a law school caravan that brings law school admission representatives to four Midwestern University campuses.  Last year a record 139 law schools participated in at least one stop.  This year will there will be stops at Indiana University, the University of Illinois, St. Louis University, and the University of Wisconsin.   We anticipate strong student attendance again this year!

We publicize the Caravan with all colleges in each site’s region, and last year each site attracted an average of 378 students from 21 undergraduate institutions.

Pre-Law Advisor Subsidy
MAPLA is offering a subsidy to Pre-Law Advisors who live in cities outside of Caravan sites. We’ll provide up to $50 per student that they are able to bring—no upper limit. We hope this subsidy will even further boost attendance and draw some new faces to each Caravan site. Click here for details.
