[Amicus Curiae Pre-Law Society] brings in key people from the community to talk to its 50 members at bimonthly meetings: judges, professors, and practicing attorneys in all different areas of the law. It's very cool. Being in Amicus has exposed me to a lot of different ways that people practice the law — it's not just as an attorney! I've met people who work in law-related businesses and people who use their law degrees in consulting and other services that you might not expect.

I took the Intro to Law pre-law class my freshman year with Maria Vitullo, the director of the Pre-Law Program…Maria's class gives a great introduction to law as well as some great information about how to get into law school.
