Group meeting for juniors who are considering applying to law school in their senior year and seniors who plan to apply in Fall 2016. General procedures, LSAT advice and application timetables will be discussed. If you cannot attend this session, please schedule a meeting with Prelaw Advisor Nancy Gibson at BCDC. Many students choose not to apply during their senior year, but pursue another interest for a year or two after graduation, then go on to law school. Join the prelaw listserv at email@example.com.
Ongoing: Fridays when court is in session: The University of Maine Law School’s Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic invites Bates students to observe third year law students handling cases in Protection from Abuse cases for their clients. At Lewiston District Court, 71 Lisbon Street, Lewiston. The courthouse is about a mile from campus. These cases involve petitioners seeking an order of protection in domestic violence cases. If the petitioner does not have a lawyer, the law student will represent him or her free of charge. Last spring, Bates students were able to shadow some student attorneys and their clients through the hearing process. Contact Nancy Gibson at firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
