The University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law will host the state’s first pre-law advisors meeting on Friday, Nov. 16, for those who advise students about attending law school in Arkansas.
As the first meeting of its kind in Arkansas, anyone who works with students interested in pursuing a career in the legal profession is invited to attend. The meeting is free, and participants are encouraged to invite their colleagues. There will be speakers from around the state and country presenting on access to justice and pre-law advising issues.
The purpose of the meeting is to bring together pre-law advisors, career counselors, and faculty who advise students about attending law school and pursuing legal careers to discuss the legal needs of Arkansas, exchange best practices, and network.
The meeting will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Bowen Law School. The event will feature an introduction to Bowen Dean Theresa Beiner and University of Arkansas School of Law Dean Margaret Sova McCabe; a session on the legal needs of Arkansas by Arkansas Access to Justice; a resources session for pre-law advisors by Law School Admission Council; as well as a discussion on opportunities for collaboration and a networking hour.
