1L 101 is an academic support program that helps first-year students maximize their study and learning skills in preparation for the rigors of law school.
First-Year Choices on Wednesday, January 28 from 3:30 to 4:30 pm in Hart Auditorium.
First Year Choices is intended to introduce 1L's to curricular and extracurricular opportunities with application deadlines in the spring and summer of 2014. Such opportunities include law journals, Barristers’ Council, Law Fellowships, Peer Advising, participation in early interview week recruiting for large law firms, externships and internships around the DC region, selection of your second year courses, student organization leadership positions, and many others. The program will help students think holistically about what package of activities might help advance goals and competencies.
