The Pre-Law program at UNF hosts many various events throughout the year in order to expose students to real world experience.
Every spring semester, the Pre-Law Program conducts an afternoon event entitled Pre-Law Forum.
This activity brings law school representatives and graduates from one particular law school or a combination of law schools to the campus to discuss all aspects of the law school admissions process.
During Spring 2011 we had three law forums. This first on campus was Stetson University School of Law. Laura Zuppo, Executive Director for Admissions and Financial Aid spoke with and answered students’ questions. Erika Wilson, a 2L at Stetson Law and a UNF graduate came with Ms. Zuppo to inform students as to what to expect during law school and about some of the opportunities to expand themselves while in law school.
Second, two schools shared the limelight-John Marshall School of Law in Atlanta and Florida Coastal School of Law. These private law schools informed students on the availability of scholarships and the cost of law school.
Third, Florida State University School of Law, Director of Admissions, Deborah Hood, informed students about the application process and admission requirements to FSU Law.
During Spring 2012 and Spring 2013, UNF hosted two law forums each year in which Florida State University College of Law and Stetson University School of Law were spotlighted.
Florida State University School of Law Director of Admissions, Jennifer Kessinger, met with students and took questions from students applying to FSU Law. To assist our students, she presented information on the application process and described what admissions is looking for on their applications.
Stetson University School of Law Director of Admissions, Laura Zuppo, met with students and took questions from students applying to Stetson Law. Ms. Zuppo presented information on financiing law school and described what Stetson's admissions personnel look for on application.
UNF is fortunate that Ms. Kessinger and Ms. Zuppo take their time to come to UNF to assist our students gain admission into law school.
