About Pre-Law

The Pre-Law Center was established in 2012 based on the student body's need for access to attorneys and attorney mentorship. Initially, the Center supported a small group of 42 students. The initial expectation at the time of its inception was to serve as many as 200 students a year. As of this year, the Pre-Law Center supports over 600 current students, alumni applicants and members of the Arlington community seeking to enter a law school.
