Pre-Law

The study of law is a rewarding and challenging endeavor, yet it is also a decision that should not be made lightly. It is a pursuit that should be followed only after careful evaluation of one's personal and professional goals and an understanding of the realities of the practice of law. Aside from the glamour of television shows and other media, the legal studies field is diverse in nature and requires many different kinds of talents.

Snell & Wilmer LSAT Diversity Scholarship

The Fellowship for Advancement and Resources (FAR) is a holistic pipeline initiative demonstrating Snell & Wilmer's (law firm with offices in multiple states) persistent and unwavering commitment to matters concerning diversity and inclusion in the workplace and legal profession. FAR attempts to address, if not eliminate, several challenges students with diverse backgrounds face in becoming successful lawyers. Individuals who are accepted into the FAR program, or "Fellows," will receive multiple incentives at key junctures of their education and will maintain contact with an assigned Snell & Wilmer attorney ("Mentor") over the course of the fellowship. The goal of the program is to assure that each Fellow develops into a successful lawyer.
