  • Welcome to YU Pre-Law Advising

     Website 1

    It's never too early to start thinking about applying to law school. The Office of Pre-Law Advisement provides one-on-one guidance to students (and alumni) from the time they begin to consider a career in the law until they matriculate in law school. Students are encouraged to meet with the pre-law adviser at least once per semester to map out their courses, learn of internship opportunities and in their later years, draft their personal statements and complete their law school applications. 

    The Pre-Law Office also provides information about Pre-Law Internships, volunteer opportunities and Pre-Law events.

    Dear Students and Alumni,  

    If you are applying or thinking of applying to law school in Fall of 2015, it is time to start getting your material together.  At this time, you should be taking the following steps:  

    1. Send me an email with: 

    your name;

    YU/Stern ID #;

    any LSAT scores you have (including cancellations);

    a list of schools you are considering;

    the names of at least 2 recommenders (preferably professors); and

    your resume.

    2.  Make an appointment to see me through the Advising Web Site.  If none of the times on the site work with your schedule, email me and we'll work out at time. 

    3.  Start thinking about a topic for your personal statement. 

    4.  Make sure you have a summer internship/opportunity lined up. 

    5.  Contact me with any questions or concerns. 

    I look forward to working with you.   

    Sincerely,
    Ms. Chelst
