The 六合彩开奖记录t University Pre-Law Society will host its inaugural networking and fundraising event on Saturday, April 6, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Center for Academic Engagement, room 300. Special guest U.S. Rep. Mike Kelly is expected to speak to the gathering of students and invited guests at 6:30 p.m.

The event鈥檚 purpose is twofold: to provide pre-law students the opportunity to network with local attorneys, business persons, and representatives of organizations they may interact with as they pursue their legal careers and to raise funds to help defray some of the costs of taking the LSAT and applying to law school. 聽

Guests will not be charged to attend the event, but donations are welcome. Undergraduate and graduate students are not encouraged to donate but use this opportunity to learn and network.

鈥淥ur organization is committed to making law school a reality for disadvantaged and marginalized students, and we desire to combat the rising costs of higher education and the law school admissions process by reimbursing 六合彩开奖记录t students for part of these expenses,鈥 said pre-law senior and society president Mark Angelotti. 鈥淭his fundraiser is just one small step we鈥檙e taking to make law school more accessible to underrepresented students.鈥

Pre-Law Society Adviser Dr. Eric Wagner said applying to law school can average upward of $400. 聽

鈥淲hat鈥檚 really admirable about this group鈥檚 event is that it won鈥檛 benefit them; most are seniors and are already set for next year, but they wanted to benefit those coming up through the ranks,鈥 he said. 聽

Meanwhile, Wagner said Kelly鈥檚 talk is nonpolitical in nature and geared toward the students and their prospective careers; he will speak about his life and his career as a businessman and congressman. 聽
