Pre-Law 

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Wendy Watson

Join this academic community to kick-start a future in law school. Participants will identify the skills for a career in the law, determine whether such a career is the right choice, and create a support system of faculty and students who understand the pressure to achieve in anticipation of law school applications. All community residents are required to enroll in UCRS 1100: Applications of Learning Foundations during fall 2017.

Engagement opportunities include:

  • Visiting courthouses and law schools
  • Observing mock law school classes
  • Attending dinners hosted by law school admissions staff
  • Participating in the UNT Amici Pre-Law Mentoring program, a four-year program that includes for-credit LSAT preparation, mentoring, leadership training, and professional skills development

The Pre-Law Living Learning Community is housed in Rawlins Hall for the 2017-2018 academic year.
