Laws are partly formed for the sake of good men, in order to instruct them on how they may live on friendly terms with one another, and partly for the sake of those who refuse to be instructed, whose spirit cannot be subdued, or softened, or hindered from plunging into evil.

Welcome to the Pre-Law Advising and Training Office (PLATO) website where you will find helpful information to assist you in your pursuit of a career in law. PLATO offers a variety of resources, seminars, workshops, events and advising services to prepare students for the law school admissions process, their first year as a law school student and the academic rigors of law school.

Any FIU student interested in pursuing law school is encouraged to attend all of the appropiate pre-law seminars offered each semester. The seminars offer insights on course and major selection, internships and networking, resume writing and resume building, preparing for The Law School Admissions Test (LSAT), admissions, financial aid, and law school selection. We also have Workshops to help you perfect your law school resume and personal statement. Individualized advising is available to students who have attended the seminars and have taken the LSAT.

We look forward to seeing you at the Pre-Law Workshops and Seminars!
