Join the Pre-Law Advising Office as we host a panel of UIUC alumni to discuss some of the many possibilities available during “gap years” prior to law school. Taking time prior to law school is an increasingly common pathway for many UIUC students.  This can be a very beneficial choice for many prospective law students and is a pathway favored by some law schools. Attendees will hear first-hand perspectives on taking time prior to law school, as well as insights about specific types of opportunities pursued during this time.  Our panelists include the following individuals:

Jack McNabb – JusticeCorps Fellow at the Chicago Daley Center

Alexandra Nevarez – Project Assistant at Sidley Austin, LLP

Kimberly Wilson – Master of Science in Comparative and International Education, 1L at the University of Illinois College of Law

Rachel Finegold – Operations Analyst at Marsh McLennan Agency, 1L at the University of Chicago Law School

Tyeese Braslavsky - James H. Dunn Memorial Policy Fellow at Office of the Governor of Illinois, 1L at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law

This program is highly recommended for any junior or senior students considering taking time prior to law school.  Please register for the online event, HERE.
