Law School Advising

The Loeb Center offers guidance and support to current students and alumni who are interested in pursuing a career and future studies in law.  We provide students with one-on-one advising to find internship opportunities to explore and test out an interest in the legal field; assistance with searching for and applying to full time employment prior to attending law school; and resources, guidance, and support during the law school application cycle.

Additionally, students can find special law-related events and opportunities by selecting all “law” categories under Career Preferences in your Handshake profile. Be sure to check the Handshake events calendar for information about law school workshops, visits by law school representatives, and other relevant events.

Students or alumni may use Handshake to schedule an appointment with the pre-law advisor.  Alumni who cannot find an available appointment in Handshake that fits their availability may call 413.542.2265 to arrange an in-person or phone appointment.
