Legal Studies program and Pre-Law Society hosts Legal Studies fair and panel event

On March 18th, the Brandeis Pre-Law Society and Legal Studies Undergraduate Department Representatives (LGLS UDRs) hosted a Legal Studies Fair at Lurias Conference Center in Sherman from 5 p.m. to 5:40 p.m. This event was a collaborative effort aimed at bringing together various legal studies-related clubs and the Legal Studies program to create an engaging platform for undergraduate students enrolled in legal studies or pre-law. The fair featured a casual atmosphere where numerous participating groups, including the Pre-Law Society, Legal Studies Program, Brandeis Law Journal, Brandeis Speech and Debate Team, HIATT Career Center, ENACT, CARE and Mock Trial hosted tables. The setup encouraged attendees to mingle and engage in meaningful conversations with representatives from a wide array of legal-related organizations and clubs, fostering a sense of community and shared purpose among students interested in the field of law. 

Immediately following the fair, from 5:40 p.m. to 7 p.m., the organizers extended an invitation to legal studies students to participate in an Open Classroom event with LGLS 89A at the Sherman Function Hall. This session featured a panel of legal professionals who shared their personal experiences and practical advice. The panel included Lisa Locher, a senior attorney in the immigration unit at Greater Boston Legal Services; Honorable Judge David Frank, a justice of the Massachusetts District Courts; and Daniel Jacobson ’16, a Brandeis alumnus and staff attorney for the Greater Boston Legal Services, focusing on the COVID eviction legal help project. The panelists offered insights into their career paths, the challenges they faced, and the successes they achieved. This event provided a platform for students to gain direct exposure to experienced legal professionals but also fostered an environment of learning and discussion about various aspects of the legal field.
