Launched in the 2010-2011 academic year, Lawrence Scholars in Law (LSL) connects alumni with current students who are considering a career in law.  Discussions focus on how alumni went from Lawrence to law school to various law careers, what the job market is like for attorneys today and what law school graduates do until they land a job. Summits often include a question-and-answer session with students.

“You can do anything with a law degree,” said Jeffrey D. Riester ’70. “You can be in the legislature, do public service or work for a company in its law department. One of the best things you will leave LU with is the flexibility and willingness to reinvent yourself as life goes along, and that happens a lot with people who have law degrees.”

Angela Ting ’11 met Bill Baer ’72 at a Lawrence Scholars in Law summit in 2010. She is now a legal assistant at Arnold & Porter LLP in Washington, D.C., where she works with Baer in the same antitrust practice group. “The power of the LU connection!” she said.

Dennis Huebner Pre-Law Stipend

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.  

Dennis Huebner of Necedah, Wisconsin graduated from Lawrence in 1996 with a degree in government and an intent to study law to prepare for a career in politics and government. Following his tragic death in 1999 an anonymous donor created the fund in his memory.
