Pre-Law Advisor

Did you know Georgia Tech now has a Pre-Law Advisor?  The advisement program started in August of 2015 as part of the Pre-Professional and Pre-Graduate team in the Center for Career Discovery and Development (C2D2). Susan Belmonte, also the Pre-Teaching Advisor, is on campus to assist students and alumni who are considering a career in the legal field, looking for exploration opportunities, and applying to law school. 

The first annual Georgia Law Schools and Tech Pre-Law Highlights Fair will be on Thursday, February 25, 2016 from 11:00 - 2:00 in the Piedmont Room of the Student Center.  This walk-in event will give attendees the chance to meet recruiters and admissions officers from the law schools at Emory, Georgia State, John Marshall Atlanta, Mercer, the University of Georgia, and the Savannah Law School.  Additionally, students can meet the pre-law advisor as well as gather information about the pre-law minor and certificate program in the School of Public Policy, the courses offered through the Scheller Business Law and Ethics program, and the collaborative B.S./Juris Master degree agreement between Georgia Tech and Emory Law.
