Mark Your Calendars – Updates for March 23

Hello Pre-Law Students! Obviously, as we continue to navigate this new world of physical distancing, and given Governor Pritzker’s “Stay-At-Home” Order, there will be no on campus activities or programs for the rest of this semester.  However, various campus offices, like PLAS, will be providing additional and expanded online resources for students.  Below are a few we know about.  PLEASE check the websites of all campus offices of interest to you to see what these offices are offering.  Also – our “Suggestions for Fall 2020 Courses” blog will be posted next Monday, March 30, so don’t forget to check it out!!
