Regional Law School Consortia
A number of law school consortia exist throughout the country. Some consortia hold regular meetings. Others do not meet but exchange information frequently. Still others are coalitions formed around specific career fairs or similar events. Especially in the latter case, the active membership of a consortium may change somewhat from year to year. NALP has compiled this list of consortia by inviting members to submit information to the NALP office.
