Latinx Pre-Law Society
I'm looking to find students that would be interested in starting a Latinx Pre-Law Society to support Terps interested in attending law school. As an immigrant and first-generation college student that grew up in a low-income household in Langley Park, a LatinX Pre-Law Society would have helped me navigate the law school application process. I've been practicing law for the past 16 years and want to help and guide future Terp lawyers. If interested, please email Juan Sempertegui at firstname.lastname@example.org
