100 xJD: Connected Lawyers are Happy Lawyers

Next Event:TBA

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 a lawyer

Method to Build a Network:

  1. 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;
  2. 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 satisfactory;
  3. 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;
  4. 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;
  5. Ask each of the two new attorneys for a referral to two other attorneys; and
  6. 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!
