[edit] Welcome

Welcome to Leverett House's Prelaw Advising Website. We are here to help you determine if a career in the law is right for you. If you decide to apply to law school, we are committed to helping you navigate through the application process. We are available to advise both current students and Leverett alumni/ae. Initially, the decision about whether or not to apply to law school - and then actually beginning that process - may seem overwhelming. However, with Leverett House's support, we're confident that we can make that process manageable. Our goal at Leverett House is to help those of you who decide to enroll in law school find the school that is the best match for you. In order to accomplish that goal, please carefully review the information contained in this site and in our Prelaw Student Handbook. Our Prelaw Student Handbook contains almost all the information you need. It walks you through the minutia involved in the application process as well as addresses questions commonly asked by Leverett students considering law school. Additionally, the Handbook discusses broader issues about careers in the legal profession.

[edit] What the prelaw committee can do for you

Here's a brief overview of what the Leverett House Prelaw Committee can do for you:

  • Provide general advice if you are a Leverett House current student or alumnus/a contemplating law school;
  • Assign you a prelaw advisor during the summer or early fall of the year in which you intend to apply to law school;
  • Serve as a clearinghouse for your prelaw materials, including letters of recommendation you collect during your time as an undergraduate; and
  • Provide information about law-related opportunities.

The Prelaw Committee looks forward to getting to know you as you consider a career in law. Both your Resident Prelaw Tutors and your Nonresident Prelaw Tutors are resources for you. You may read the bios of the Prelaw Committee members here. You are encouraged to contact directly a Nonresident Tutor who shares your interests with questions or an invitation to meet over a meal in the dining hall.
