100 xJD: Connected Lawyers are Happy Lawyers
Goal: For UVU prelaw students to know 100 lawyers by the time they graduate from law school
Program: Attorneys will be invited to UVU monthly, throughout the year, so that students
can meet them and learn about their professional expertise and experiences
Benefit: The creation of your own personal and professional network as you prepare to become
Method to Build a Network:
- Students should contact one lawyer, take him/her to lunch, ask questions on the Lawyer
Interview Questions (found on the Forms page), take notes, collect the lawyer's card
and store permanently, such as in a binder, and ask that lawyer to refer you to two
other attorneys and thank him/her for sharing their time and information;
- Contact each of the two referred attorneys, indicating that you were referred by the
initial attorney, and invite her/him to lunch or whatever place/time that is mutually
- In the subsequent meeting with the two referred attorneys, ask the questions on Lawyer
Interview Form, take notes, collect lawyer's card and store permanently;
- Contact the first attorney to let him/her know how much you enjoyed meeting the other
two attorneys and thank him/her for the referral;
- Ask each of the two new attorneys for a referral to two other attorneys; and
- Repeat until you know or have met 100 lawyers!
1st Annual UVU Law School Boot Camp
The 1st Annual UVU Law School Boot Camp was held May 29-June 1, 2012. Seven students
completed the course and entered law schools around the country in Fall 2012. BYU
Law professors and local practicing attorneys taught the course. Lunch with Lawyers
and Dinner with Law Students rounded out the program.
2nd Annual UVU Law School Boot Camp
The 2nd Annual UVU Law School Boot Camp was held May 20-23, 2013. This year the program
was opened up to all UVU students, not just admitted students. Six students completed
the course. Several of the students will enter law school in and one will go to medical
school in Fall 2013. Prelaw Advisor, Eileen Doyle Crane, taught the course. It was
shorter and more compact this year, requiring much more work on the students' part.
We had a great time!
3rd Annual UVU Law School Boot Camp
The 2014 Boot Camp was held May 19-22, 2014. A record 24 students registered for
the boot camp. Eighteen students completed the camp at the end of the weeks. Two
alumni from the 1st Annual Boot Camp, Brixton Hakes and Adam Easter, visited the boot
camp to encourage UVU students in their preparations for law school. Four students
will attend law school in Fall 2014. Twelve students are preparing for law school
in 2015 and four others are preparing for 2016. They are well on their way to excelling
in law school!
4th Annual UVU Law School Boot Camp
Watch for the announcement for the 2015 4th Annual Law School Boot Camp in February
2015 to be held in May. The registration form is below and will be due May 15, 2015.
See you there!
