The page called “Get News,” is a blog where GSU pre-law news is posted. These blog posts are the best source of information about events and opportunities of relevance to GSU pre-law students. To receive this breaking information, it is a good idea to join the GSU Pre-Law Email List. By joining that list, you will receive a weekly digest listing all new posts to this site. It is important to join the Pre-Law Email List anyway because it is the best way to get and stay connected to the GSU pre-law community.
There are two other ways to stay informed about pre-law opportunities for GSU students. First, you can join Pre-Law Society and/or other pre-law student groups on campus. Second, you can click on this link to join the GroupMe for CASA Pre-Law. CASA Pre-Law is GSU’s innovative official centralized pre-law advising program headed by Professor Ryan Grelecki. Specifically, CASA Pre-Law has three main declared goals: “1) help students discover whether the study and practice of law are a good fit for their academic, professional, and personal goals; 2) provide pre-law mentoring and opportunities that hone interests and keeps students on track toward successful law school bids and progressions; and 3) maintain a legal internship program through local and regional firms.”
