Lawrence University is pleased to announce the availability of the Dennis Huebner Pre-Law Stipend, established in 2000 in honor and memory of Mr. Dennis Huebner ’96. The stipend can offset or cover expenses related to exploring or pursuing opportunities related to a career in the legal profession.

Law School application fees
Supplemental living expenses for a summer legal internship
