At any point during your time as a Baruch student or even as an alumnus, please feel free to make an appointment with the Max Berger Pre-Law Advisor. This advisor can help you plan for law school, provide you with information on which law schools are right for you, review personal statements and other application materials, and provide general support for the process.
A great way to jumpstart your legal career would be to read the Pre Law Handbook.
Check out the Pre-Law Brief for information on scholarships, internships and other law related opportunities.
Many of the participants of the Max Berger Pre Law Program are also active members of the Pre Law Society, a student run organization at Baruch College. PLS provides students with the opportunity to interact with other students interested in law. Club meetings are tailored to help students prepare for the law school application process and for choosing a career in law. Meetings are held on Thursdays during club hours.
Increasing Diversity in Law
There are a number of programs available for students from underrepresented groups to explore and pursue their interest in law. Participating in one of these programs can help you build the skills you need to succeed in law school and in your future career, learn more about the law school application process, and develop a supportive network as you take the next step in your journey. Whether you are a first-year undergraduate or a graduate preparing to enter law school, find the right opportunity for you.
