Guidance and Mentoring
Key moments to reach out to the PRLC include:
- Freshman Year/Junior Year — Is law school right for you?
- Sophomore/Senior Year — How best to achieve your goals?
- Confused about picking the “right” major/class/extracurricular activity? (Academic changes still need to go through the advisor of your major).
- Considering your application and managing your academic career for law school admission in the cycle you wish to apply.
- Resume help.
- Help finding internships, community volunteer positions, gap year opportunities.
- Considering and selecting law schools.
- Guidance on law school applications.
- LSAT preparation and test taking logistics.
Pre-law is not a major or a degree program. Students enter law school from virtually every academic discipline. No specific major or set of courses is required for law school admission.
Your academic advisor will assist you with course planning and scheduling, but the PLRC helps students build a competitive application for a law school and prepare for career in the legal profession with:
- peer connections
- vocational advising
- opportunities to meet with legal professionals and law school personnel
At WSU, students can choose a program of study that allows them to develop and strengthen the skills needed to succeed in law school, the legal profession, and life.
The PLRC advises students on how to make the most of their undergraduate education and provides guidance to successfully transition into law school and/or a legal career. The Center was created to provide all students customized tools and distinct advantages to achieve accelerated success in their identified educational and career goals in the law field.
The PLRC has a faculty Pre-Law Advisor and student peer advisors to help you. They are available to answer your questions anytime by appointment and during office hours M-TH 9-5.
