Dear Pre-Law Advisor Colleague:
I invite you and your students to join two highly experienced pre-law advisors at our October 19 webinar, Should I Become a Lawyer? A Roadmap for Those Thinking About Law School.
Our featured presenters are Diane Curtis, director of pre-law advising and senior lecturer at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Valinda Lee, associate director of Career Planning & Resources at Scripps College in California.
This free webinar will be of special interest to undergraduates and those in the work force who are just beginning to think about a legal career. Our expert presenters will offer a series of recommendations for learning about legal careers, tips for assessing whether law school might be appropriate, and initial steps that should be taken by those who decide to attend law school. Following the presenters’ remarks will be a 15-minute Q&A session during which webinar participants may ask questions of the presenters.
The Office of Admissions at Columbia Law School is hosting a live online information session and Q&A on Wednesday October 26th, 2016 at 3:00pm EST. Associate Director of Admissions Amy Hung and Suparna Reddy ’17 will address a variety of topics relating to the law school admissions process, curriculum, student life on campus, career opportunities in the Midwest, and more.
The MSU Law Admissions Office will host a variety of on-campus and online programs this fall for undergraduates who are exploring law as a career and those who have decided to apply for admission to law school. The programs will offer global insights about legal education, legal careers, and the law school admission application process. Some programs will focus on MSU Law specifically. All events are offered at no charge; however, advance registration is required.
