The University of Tulsa College of Law will host a free, daylong Native American Pre-Law Workshop on Friday, April 23, at the TU law school, 3120 E. Fourth Place, in Tulsa, Okla., for American Indian college and high school students and other Native Americans considering law school.
“This day of exploration and dialogue is designed to get students thinking about law as a career. Thanks to the national Law School Admission Council, we will be able to provide this information to local students and students from nearby states,” said Professor Judith Royster, who wrote the grant for the workshop and is directing the event.
The workshop will feature a keynote address by Stacy Leeds, associate professor of law at the University of Kansas and justice of the Cherokee Judicial Appeals Tribunal, a panel of prominent Native American attorneys, discussions about how to prepare now for the future study of law, and details about the law school admissions process and financial assistance. Participants will experience a mock law school class and hear from a group of current Indian law students.
Scholarships are available to assist with transportation and hotel costs for students outside easy driving distance of Tulsa. For more information about scholarships, contact Judith Royster at firstname.lastname@example.org or (918) 631-3191.
