We’re halfway through the semester!!!

Whether you’re preparing for exams, LSAT or graduation, don’t forget to take some time to destress.  Mental health is just as important as physical health.  If we can ever be of assistance in this regard in the Pre-Law Center, please feel free to reach out.

In the meantime, enjoy these announcements and we hope to see you at these upcoming events.  Special shoutout to the UTA Mock Trial team who competed in their regional tournament in the last weekend in February.  They did a great job!  Congratulations to the newest Pre-Law student org, Pre-Law NBLSA, who became an official UTA org this month! We can’t wait to see what exciting things lie ahead for the org and its members.
