Welcome to the Hunter Pre-Law Program!
The Pre-Law Program is open to current students and alumni.
CO-CURRICULAR EVENTS & OPPORTUNITIES: The program offers a variety of seminars, workshops, and panels to provide insight into the work of lawyers and the demands of a legal career, legal education, and anticipating law school. We support funded summer internship opportunities; a subsidized LSAT class; special moot court January program; and application stipends to help you reach your goals.
UNDERGRADUATE PLANNING: On the advising front, the office provides a full range of information and counseling to help you plan your legal career: course selection, resume building, LSAT prep, and assistance in helping you explore your interest in a potential legal career.
ADMISSIONS: We offer one-on-one help in all aspects of the law school application process, including school selection, waitlist issues, discipinary issues, merit funding and more. We discuss and review all components of your application in real time. We do not accept email submissions. Please attend a law school application workshop (offered multiple times in spring, summer, and fall) before setting up an admissions-related appointment.
GETTING STARTED: We look forward to sitting down with you to hear about your academic and career plans. Before you visit the office, please do register with the program so we are aware of your interest and have some information about you.

The Pre-Law Program hosts lunch and speakers for the group generally every second Wednesday of the month (but check the event page for schedule changes), in addition to coordinating other events. This club and others are listed under the "Student Opportunities" tab.
