NIU College of Law Admissions Informational Interviews

Monday, February 18, 2013 at 9:00am to 6:00pm

Swen Parson, 151 230 Normal Rd

We are pleased to offer informational interviews for those students applying to start the first-year of the J.D. program at NIU Law in Fall 2013.

These professional interviews are 30 minutes long and will be conducted by the Director of Admissions or an Admission Counselor from the NIU Law Office of Admissions and Financial Aid. The interviews provide the opportunity for NIU Law to get to know more about your perspective and what you may possibly bring to the law school community. And, this is a great opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have about the curriculum, the community, and the career prospects for NIU Law students.

Following your participation in the Informational Interview Program, a narrative report of your interview will be placed in your admission file and will provide the Admissions Committee more information by which to evaluate you as they render decisions for the Fall 2013 entering class.

We are offering these interviews at the law school itself, located on NIU’s main campus in DeKalb.

Please note that it is not a requirement to have applied to NIU Law prior to participating in an interview with NIU Law’s Office of Admissions. For candidates who complete an informational interview during the month of February, the NIU Law Office of Admissions will provide an application fee waiver for Fall 2013 admission. The application fee to NIU Law is normally $50. Recipients of these waivers will be provided with a multiple-digit waiver “code” to utilize upon application to NIU Law via the Law School Admission Council’s website at

It is imperative that you schedule your interview slot in advance. Please call 815.753.8595 or email to schedule your interview. Interviews are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
