Guided by faculty and staff within the Longhorn Center for Academic Excellence and the School of Law, students learned not just how to get into law school but also which avenue to take within the all-encompassing field of law. Activities included classes taught by law school professors, networking receptions, admissions panels, LSAT preparation, field trips to local law offices and more.
