Volunteer and In-Kind Support

There are many exciting ways for you to get involved in the UHLC Pre-Law Pipeline Programs. Through the support of the attorneys, law firms, judges, professors, law students, community residents, and businesses who donate their money, time, space, and expertise, we are able to provide a plethora of opportunities for our students. As an interested party, you have the chance to choose from a variety of opportunities; you may host interns at your place of employment, dinner panels, or speak to our students during the program. If interested, please complete our form and someone from our office will contact you to secure your assistance. Any form of support is valuable and goes a long way towards improving the quality of our students' Program experience.
