New Pre-Law Related Class

Looking for another class to add for this upcoming fall semester? If so, consider taking HST 290K: American Law and the Constitution. This class is taught by Dr. Aaron Cavin on WF 11:30-12:50. 

Course description: The law shapes virtually every aspect of our lives – the foods we eat, the ways we communicate, the families we make. Yet, in spite of the ubiquity of the law, it is often invisible. We don’t often think consciously of the law, question its assumptions, or analyze its effects. In this course, we will investigate the surprising histories of America’s incredibly powerful legal institutions, from the roots of the American legal tradition to debates over the meaning of the Constitution to the increasing power of the Supreme Court. As we explore the evolution of law in American life, we will use historical study to understand a number of legal controversies before us today, including same-sex marriage and the role of law during wartime.

Good Luck on the LSAT Tomorrow

The Pre-Law Program wishes everyone taking the LSAT tomorrow the best of luck! Remember these tips and tricks while taking the test tomorrow:

– Don’t forget your admission ticket and form of identification!

– Tip: bring a watch so you can keep track of time

– Bring a small snack and water with you to keep you energized

– Get lots of sleep the night before!
