One way to get involved with the pre-law community on campus is to regularly participate in activities hosted by CASA Pre-Law. To stay informed about CASA Pre-Law activities, make sure to join their GroupMe.
Another great way to get involved is to join a pre-law student group. Here are the five active pre-law student groups on campus (click on a group name to learn more about it):
It is quite possible to be a part of more than one of these groups at the same time, so make sure to check out every group that is of interest to you.
Getting involved with one or more pre-law student groups on campus can help you meet some or all of following objectives:
- Learn more about the legal profession so that you can decide if you really want to be a lawyer.
- Discover the specific areas of law that interest you most.
- Engage in law-related leadership activities to put on your resume (which you will send to law schools when you apply).
- Develop skills that will help you excel in law school and/or as a lawyer.
- Connect with other pre-law students to share strategies, resources, information and opportunities.
- Demonstrate your character strengths to professors outside of the classroom so that they can write stronger letters of recommendation for you when you apply for internships, jobs, and/or law school.
