McGeorge's 12th annual Law Day attracted more than 225 potential applicants to campus on Nov. 5, 2011.

The law school's open house previously was held in the spring, but this year the Admissions Office decided to move it forward to give potential fall 2012 applicants a better feel for legal education earlier in the admissions cycle. It also gave college underclassmen a change to size up the legal profession as a possible future career choice. Attendees included junior college, college and post-graduate students from many of the greater Sacramento area's educational institutions.

"It was an unqualified success," said Assistant Dean of Enrollment Management Adam Barrett. "Many of our guests told me how impressed they were with our beautiful campus and the warm welcome they received from faculty, staff, and students."

The Law Day program included a breakfast, campus tour, mock classes, lunch, student panel discussion, and a "Meet the Experts" reception. Professors Ruth Jones, Larry Levine and John Sprankling, all of whom teach first-year courses, conducted mock classes.
