Events for Students


On-campus events for students abound at Southwestern. We host nearly 400 events each academic year. Those include large formal events such as symposia and conferences to which students are invited. We hold Student Bar Association Fairs where students can explore all the groups available to them. Table Day events are held twice per year where students can get advice on the new semester’s course offerings. Our Externship Forum encourages students to connect with law offices, government entities, non-profit organizations and other companies looking for legal externs. The Career Services Office holds career panels multiple times throughout the academic year. Visiting faculty and alumni regularly come to speak to and network with our students. During Diversity Week and Bison Week, Southwestern celebrates with food fairs and fun events to allow students some much-needed recreation time.

Major events for students include Orientation and Commencement.
