Pre-Law Program

The Pre-Law Program helps students make informed decisions about pursuing a career in legal professions. A faculty adviser assists students in assessing the academic, personal, and professional competencies and credentials they need to become successful applicants and students of the law schools they aspire to attend.

The Magner Career Center gives students interested in careers in law access to career advisement, professional networks, career events, internships, and more to help them clarify and achieve their goals.

Through the generosity of the Geen family, students like Jessica Betancourt and Finn Mayock, can receive funding to support their LSAT preparation or participate in an unpaid internship.

By participating in several career events held each year, students also have access to successful Brooklyn College alumni who share their experiences working in the legal field, and provide students with valuable advice on navigating the pro’s and con’s of the profession. Here are just some of the past participants:

  • Ben Adams  Staff Attorney at United States Courts
  • Kevin L. Jones Assistant District Attorney at Queens District Attorney’s Office
  • Katerina Robinson  Federal Prosecuting Attorney: Department of Homeland Security
  • Edward Smith  Attorney: Manhattan District Attorney’s Office
  • Terrance Stroud Director of Training & Development at the New York City Department of Preservation and Development
  • Joseph Valerio Associate at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, LLP
