The faculty adviser is John Kovari.

Pre-Law Society

Pre-Law Society is a campus organization dedicated to the open discussion of concepts and ideas of interest to students wishing to pursue a career in the law. The organization strives to serve the needs of those considering law schools and a possible law career. Of special interest are its law school caravans (to visit law schools), practice LSATs, and participation in Mock Trial Team competitions. The faculty adviser is Jim Szymalak.

Additionally, students are welcome to participate on Mock Trial Team and Model United Nations as a club activity if, for example, they have already completed the maximum number of credits. Although club participants will not receive a course grade, they will be expected to pay the equivalent of the course fee and to prepare for conferences and competitions alongside the students enrolled in the course. For more information please contact Jim Szymalak (Mock Trial Team) or Adam Van Liere (Model United Nations).
