This summer Washburn University will once again be hosting a Pre-Law Camp for high school students and incoming college freshmen July 16-19, 2012. The camp offers an enriching, educational, and fun opportunity for participants to learn about the study of law. The camp features lectures by faculty from both the pre-law and law school faculty, practicing attorneys, mock trial coaches, and current Washburn students that help campers understand what a legal education entails. Specific topics that are discussed during the camp include: How to apply for law school, How to prepare for the LSAT, How to survive a pre-law and a legal education, An overview of the legal rules of evidence, and An overview of intercollegiate Mock Trial. In an effort to apply knowledge gained during the camp and to hone communication skills, participants will also have the opportunity to prepare for and take part in an actual mock trial.
