The Pre-Law Advising Office provides comprehensive advising services to students and alumni interested in pursuing legal careers. Its mission is to help students and alums prepare to attend a law school of their choice, and make the informed decisions that lead to fulfilling, productive careers. To that end, the office provides a range of services to strengthen applications, from options counseling regarding whether, when and where to attend school, through assistance with the application process, including tips on preparation for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) or Graduate Record Examination (GRE), and drafting of personal statements. The office also sponsors a variety of law-related events to inform students about the practice of law and the changing legal profession. The Pre-Law Advising website contains an ever-expanding set of articles and resources about law school and legal careers, and the office has established an informational and mentoring network to connect alumni lawyers with current students.
