COVID-19 Updates

 

Center Updates 

Given the current state of affairs, all students are strongly encouraged to remain away from campus.  As a result, we will not be holding in-person advising appointments.  If you would like to make an advising appointment with Mrs. White, please email elicia.vernon@uta.edu, and she can set up a time for you to speak to Mrs. White in a phone meeting.  If you would otherwise prefer to have your questions and concerns addressed via email correspondence, please contact Mrs. White at amber.white@uta.edu.

We will continue to provide updates and important Pre-Law information you need to know.  Should anyone have any questions or concerns, you’re always free to reach out to me directly by email.

Concerned About Pass/Fail Affecting Your Law School Applications?

I have received several questions from you all regarding UTA's recent policy switch allowing for the election of Pass/Fail grading in your respective courses.  Many of the questions stem around the notion that law schools will not look kindly on applications with pass/fail or whether it will count for or against them on their GPA.  Allow me to address your concerns as fully as I can and if you still have questions, please do send them to me.

About

The Pre-Law Center was established in 2012 based on the student body 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.
