Pre-Law Advising

The process of applying to law school can be complex and, at times, bewildering.  This website will hopefully offer you guidance and information necessary to make the process go as smoothly as possible.  This is a centralized resource for all of your questions as well as for news about relevant opportunities and organizations.
The site is organized around common questions that students raise about law school.

In addition, here are two presentations that cover both the application process and legal careers (thanks to Lissa Kaufman at Student Legal Services for the latter presentation).
