Pre-Law Opportunities Newsletter
April 07, 2022 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources
FROM THE ADVISOR:
Do you have the need, the need for speed? Don’t we all! But if you’re looking for speed when it comes to the editing of your documents (e.g., personal statements, resumes, etc.), there’s only so fast I can go. If you have materials that you’d like reviewed before a deadline (e.g., the EAP deadline next week), make sure you send them to me with a couple days as a buffer for me to get them back to you. In addition, consider stopping by during the Cawley Career Education Center’s drop-in hours if you’re looking for another set of eyes on your resume. And take advantage of the Writing Center when it comes to guidance on your personal statement or other essays. Finally, make sure you’re taking advantage of all of our outstanding online pre-law resources.
Turning to innovative internships, make sure you look into the great offerings from the Georgetown VIEW Program, which aims to provide students with opportunities to develop real world, resume-building skills through short-term project work completed in a virtual environment. Opportunities include:
- conducting academic research on international constitutional law;
- grant writing for a legal app;
- grant writing for a legal access nonprofit;
- conducting research for a women-in-law startup;
- contributing to an intellectual property boot camp;
- developing data for a legal access nonprofit.
Don’t miss out on these awesome and unique experiences!
Finally, I also want to highlight The CALL, Georgetown’s premiere experiential learning program. Through The CALL’s Pre-Law track, students pursue a range of paths within the legal field, gaining experience in a legal-focused internship and through relevant coursework. This is an ideal opportunity for students, in all majors and schools, interested in attending law school. Registration is now open for Fall 2022. Check it out!
