SCETL Annual Pre-Law Lecture: The Role of Lawyers in a Free Society

April 5 | 5:00 p.m. MST | Coor Hall L1-10

The Annual SCETL Pre-Law lecture aims to introduce SCETL and ASU students to the study and practice of law by inviting prominent professors of the law and other relevant fields to discuss law school itself, the application process and the study of law, as well as important topics relevant to the practice of law.

In this talk, Professor Wurman will make the case for law school, and for lawyers. He will explain why one should go to law school, what kind of lawyer one should aspire to be, and what all that has to teach us about the Constitution.

Space is limited, you must be registered to attend.
