Law School Preparation
Students interested in pursuing a career as an attorney can join the Pre-Law Club at UTB/TSC and enroll in the Filemon B. Vela Pre-Law Academy (ALAW 4368). The academy helps current students or UTB/TSC graduates to improve their law school admission chances and law school success. The course focuses on test taking techniques for the LSAT, law school teaching methods and an introduction to the Cameron County legal community.
A student may obtain more information regarding the club or the academy by visiting the Filemon B. Vela Pre-Law Academy website and by contacting the Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs at 956-882-8975.
Our successful graduates of the Filemon B. Vela Pre-Law Academy attend prestigious law schools as Northwestern University Law School (Sandra Vera ’09) and The University of Texas at Austin Law School (Jason Rios ’10 and Layla Garcia ’10).
