Pre-Law: Early April Edition

April 8, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources


I’d like to highlight a unique opportunity for those of African descent who are juniors in college or above and intend to enroll in law school in the near future.  Pembe (new window), a new organization focused on boosting representation of the African diaspora in U.S. law schools and the legal profession, is recruiting the inaugural cohort of Pembe mentees (new window).  Mentees will be mentored by current legal professionals and law students of African descent.  Specifically, mentors will work with mentees to help them prepare for the LSAT, guide them through the law school application and selection process, and advise them about law school and their legal careers.  The application form is located here (new window).  Apply by May 15th.  

Reminder: The deadline for Georgetown Law’s Early Assurance Program (new window) (EAP) for juniors is this Saturday.  As many of you finish assembling your materials, remember that our Pre-Law Guide (new window) is here to help you with virtually every aspect of your application, and don’t forget the videos (new window) we have available (many do).  GOOD LUCK! ​
