The purpose of the Ashford University Pre Law Society (AUPLS) is to serve students interested in a career in law, and to provide an organization respondent to those students who share an interest in the subject of law.
One primary aim of the society is to provide essential background information relative to law school admission by:
- Educating members on the application process in regards to timelines;
- Familiarizing members with useful facilities such as LSAC;
- Informing members of where and to whom to send transcripts; and
- Assisting members with the selection of law school institutions based on the individual’s personal strengths and characteristics.
We also work to gather contacts in the legal field by effectively networking with legal professionals, including Ashford University alumni, and by locally publicizing the club.
To join, please fill out an application, which will be reviewed by the AUPLS officers. You may submit an application at any time during the academic year. Anyone is welcome to apply, but membership will be limited to those who aim to pursue a career in law, or who demonstrate a focused interest in the subject of law.
For continued membership, members must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.75 or above. Should a member drop below this standard, the AUPLS officers and faculty advisors will review his or her membership standing.
