Because UGA has no dedicated pre-law major (nor should it, appropriately), students can select from a variety of Franklin College, SPIA and other majors as a solid preparation for entering professional training for the J.D. degree. From English to history, sociology to philosophy and classics, not to mention any of the sciences, if a student has decided on the law as a career path, the Franklin College is replete with options to build a unique set of sterling credentials sure to make a law school application stand out (along with a great LSAT scores). So, we want to make sure students know about two upcoming information sessions concerning law school and careers in the law:
The Pre-Law Advising Office is providing an opportunity for University of Georgia students and alumni to ask questions at two discussion panels with law schools from across the Southeast. The discussions will be held on Feb. 17 and 24 from 5:30-7 p.m. in Room 214 of the Miller Learning Center.
Panel participants include admissions officers and academic representatives from law schools in the Southeastern U.S., including UGA, Mercer University, Atlanta's John Marshall Law School, Wake Forest University, Stetson University and the University of Memphis.
"This is an opportunity for students and alumni to learn more about the programs and clinics offered by the law schools," said Cathy Clutter, director of the Pre-Law Advising Office. "The topics range from weighting of admissions factors, timing of applications, and cost to school rankings and job market prospects. However, the major focus is on the admissions process for these schools."
Open to the public but students and alumni should register by email at email@example.com. Great job by our advisors and the Office of the Vice President for Instruction.
