Coffee with a Legal Professional Series

Our coffee with a Legal Professional series is an intimate setting in which 4-5 students have the opportunity to converse and bond with various professors, law students, and legal professionals. This program exposes undergraduate students to "an insider" view of the law, as well as allows students to ask about legal careers, law schools, and different areas of legal academia, etc.

Stanford Law School Mentorship Program

The SPLS Mentorship Program offers undergraduates a unique opportunity to develop a relationship with a Stanford law student. Law student mentors expose undergraduate mentees to the law school experience and can help guide them through the application process. In order to ensure quality mentoring relationships, we try our best to match participants with similar interests and maintain a low mentee-to-mentor ratio. We hold regular informal gatherings (1-2 per quarter) and encourage individual meetings between mentors and mentees throughout the year. The deadline for this program has passed. Please check back next autumn for next year's application. Even students without an assigned mentor are welcome to come to the meet-and-greet events. Please direct any questions to spls.president@gmail.com.

Stanford Law School Shadowing Week

The Stanford Pre-Law Society invites you to participate in our annual Shadowing Week. Shadowing Week gives you the opportunity to sit in on courses at the Stanford Law School and interact with the professors. This is the perfect opportunity to see what law school is all about. Last year, we had an amazing selection of law school courses, including but not limited to: Constitutional Law Resolution, Intellectual Property Law, Gender Law, and Law and Economics. You can download the very brief application here. Please email it to spls.membership@gmail.com by Wednesday, March 31st at 5pm.

Road to Law School Panel

The Road to Law School series is a three-event sequence which offers undergraduates a variety of perspectives on preparing for law school. The first event, held during fall quarter, is a panel on the law school application process; panelists include undergraduate seniors who have already applied to law school, current law students, and staff from the Stanford Law School Office of Admissions. The second event, held during winter quarter, is a panel addressing the personal statement for law school applications; panelists include seniors, law students, and experts from the Hume Writing Center. The spring quarter event is a workshop led by staff from the SLS Office of Admissions discussing the many methods of financing a law school education. Each event provides an excellent forum in which undergraduates can get their questions answered and come away with concrete strategies for preparing for law school.
