Furman’s Office of Pre-Professional Advising (OPPA) provides support for current students and alumni to explore and prepare for the legal profession. The office assists students in finding ways to gain exposure to the law and the legal profession by helping students identify relevant classes, secure law-related internships, attend law-related presentations and alumni events, and participate in law career treks and visits to law schools.

With a full-time dedicated Pre-Law Advisor, the office offers a variety of advising services to guide students and alumni through the preparation and law school admissions process. In addition to one-on-one advising, our Pre-Law Advisor conducts admissions workshops, takes students to the regional LSAC Forum and to NC Diversity Law Day, hosts law schools and attorney panels, assists with admissions preparation interviews, and provides any additional support necessary to help students achieve their goals.
