Third-year Harrisburg campus students Stephen McClendon and Morgan Davis, and second-year student Melissa Toalton, had the opportunity to speak with the ten undergraduate students participating in the Harrisburg Jurist Academy program that ran from June 3rd through the 14th about the experience.
The pair of distinctive “Mentoring Moments” sessions took place on the evenings of June 5th and June 12th, and gave the participating students an opportunity to speak with the three current law students about law school and the Jurist Academy program.
A two-week long summer-camp that offers promising undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds a look at law school and encourages them to pursue a legal education, the Jurist Academy program takes place at the beginning of each summer on both Widener Law campuses.
Students participating in the program shared how participation in the Jurist Academy had given them a more informed perspective on law school. The students in the program also praised the faculty and staff members involved in the workshops and classes, particularly Professor Randy Lee
for his dedication. The Jurist Academy students focused questions for the three current Widener Law students on taking the LSAT and the law school application process.
