For Members

Membership in the Midwest Association of Pre-Law Advisors (MAPLA) is open to pre-law advisors from 2- and 4- year institutions.  MAPLA is open to pre-law advisors in the Midwest region, which includes Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, but pre-law advisors from any region are also welcome to join MAPLA.  In addition, law school representatives from any ABA-approved law school are eligible for membership.

Membership in MAPLA begins September 1 and runs through August 31 of the following year. Membership fees:

  • Pre-Law Advisors $40
  • Law School Representative (single) $60
  • Law School Institutional Membership (2 members) $100
  • Law School Institutional Membership (3-5 members) $150

Those interested in joining MAPLA can apply for membership in one of two ways:

  1. If not attending the annual conference, complete the Membership Form.
  2. Registration for the MAPLA annual conference INCLUDES the membership fee for that particular year.  In years the Pre-Law Advisors National Conference is held instead,  PLANC registration includes annual MAPLA dues for that year.  
  3. NOTE: Current members—as of May 1, 2020—will have their membership extended for 2020-21 for FREE! You do not need to complete a new membership form to take advantage of your free membership year. Your membership will automatically be rolled over.
