• Academic Advising


    It’s never too early to start thinking about applying to law school. The Office of Pre-Law Advisement provides one-on-one guidance to students (and alumni) from the time they begin to consider a career in the law until they matriculate in law school. Students are encouraged to meet with the pre-law adviser at least once per semester to map out their courses, learn of internship opportunities and in their later years, draft their personal statements and complete their law school applications.

    The Pre-Law Office also provides information about Pre-Law Internships, volunteer opportunities and Pre-Law events.  An important first step for participating in these programs is to sign up for the pre-law listserv.  Students are also encouraged to check out the "Resources" and "FAQ"  tabs which provide helpful links and documents for students considering a career in law or actively applying to law school.

    I look forward to working with each of you throughout your undergraduate experience. My office is located in Furst Hall, Room 110. Please stop by to introduce yourselves or to schedule an appointment. I look forward to meeting you.
