Formed in 1988, the Student Recruitment and Orientation Committee (SROC) works closely with the Law School's Admissions Office, acting as an invaluable resource for prospective students seeking to learn more about both the admissions process and the Law School itself. SROC members volunteer a minimum of one hour a week to help current and prospective UT Law applicants by keeping them informed about the steps and requirements of the admissions process. Having been through this process themselves, SROC members are in a unique position to provide not only practical assistance, but also insight from their firsthand experience.
SROC members also give tours to prospective students, helping to ensure that applicants, parents, and the public know as much as possible about UT Law's academic strength, breadth of options, and unique character. SROC members and committee chairs also help to organize large-scale events such as UT Law Day, an open house for anyone interested in learning more about UT Law, are heavily involved in coordinating and staffing Admitted Students Day, our annual event for admitted students, and Orientation, our two day program for incoming first-year students.
SROC works hard to make certain that all prospective students, most of whom have multiple attractive options available, have the information they need to make the very important decision of what law school is right for them. As one of the most diverse student organizations at the Law School, these student ambassadors can give prospective students an unmatched degree of insight into the law school admissions process by sharing their experiences. Through this spectrum of service, SROC ensures that future classes of students live up to UT Law's proud tradition.
