The Center believes that advising is crucial for a student's success in obtaining acceptance to law school. At St. Bonaventure University pre-law advising begins early. As soon as a student decides they would like to go to law school we suggest they contact us to schedule a meeting.
We do one-on-one advising, meeting with a student whenever they have questions or concerns. Our advising focuses on undergraduate preparation, LSAT preparation, navigating the admission process and choosing law schools.
Students interested in going to law school should contact one of the Center for Law & Society Directors early in their undergraduate career.to schedule an advising meeting.

The Center for Law & Society offers numerous workshops each semester. The workshops provide an opportunity for all students to gather additional information about various aspects of law school preparation and the admissions process.
While legal internships are not a requirement for admission to law school, many students find them interesting and educational.
The Center for Law & Society works individually with students to organize local semester-long internships as well as summer internships in their hometowns.
Students interested in a legal internship should contact Dr. Steven Nuttall at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (716) 375-2260 to schedule an appointment.
Mock Trial is designed to prepare students to compete in the American Mock Trial Association's regional and national mock trial tournaments.
Students learn to construct all components of a trial, from opening statements, to direct and cross examinations of witnesses, to closing arguments. They become familiar with many of the rules of evidence and procedure governing trial courts across the nation. The program is an excellent introduction to the trial process as it operates in the United States.
If you are thinking about law school, you want to experience what it is like to engage in trial advocacy, or you just enjoy the thrill of intellectual competition, Mock Trial is for you!
For more information contact Dr. Steven Nuttall, our Mock Trial advisor, by email at email@example.com or by phone at (716) 375-2260.
