Professor Laura Graham is the Pre-Law Adviser for Wake Forest. Professor Graham is a “Double Deacon” (BA ’86, JD ’94) and has been on the faculty of Wake Forest University School of Law for fourteen years. If you’re considering a career in the law, we encourage you to meet with Professor Graham early in your time here at Wake, so that you can develop a strategy that will maximize your chances of getting into the law school of your choice and that will give you a good understanding of what a legal education entails. Professor Graham has designated drop-in office hours in the Office of Personal and Career Development (OPCD) and is available to meet at other times at her office in the Worrell Professional Center.
We hope you will take advantage of the many opportunities available to pre-law students here at Wake, including the Pre-Law Society, the Mock Trial Team, the informal Law Student Mentoring Program, and many others. Upcoming pre-law events are listed in the calendar on this site.
