Every year the Women in Law Committee hosts a wonderful event. It is called the Pre-Law Event. Why do we call it that? The reason we call it the Pre-Law Event is because it is held in order to help female undergraduate students (males are welcome too) help make the decision about whether or not they want to attend law school.
In years past we have had law students, law professors, judges, attorneys, and mother-daughter and father-daughter attorney duos.
This year the event is entitled "Law School and Beyond." It will be a panel discussion about opportunities after law school. Our panelists will be Lorena Riffo-Jenson, president of Vox Creative and Kelly Marsden, associate general counsel at the University of Utah.
In addition to the formal presentation, there is always a Q & A segment which is followed by one-on-one discussions with not only the presenters but also any attorneys that are in attendance. Which leads me to a request: join us for "Law School and Beyond" this year. We need you. Please come talk to these undergraduate (and some high school) students who are thinking about attending law school. Your experiences and insights can help them in countless ways.
So, you may be asking when and where: Wednesday, October 2, 2013 at 7:00pm-8:30pm in Room 3228 in the Wilkinson Center at BYU.
If you're anywhere close to Provo, Utah on Wednesday October 2nd, please come by and help these students. I promise it will be a rewarding experience for them... and you.
