Additional Resources and Opportunities

Hill to Hill Networking Program

Because the program stresses the importance of building relationships, students have the opportunity to participate in the Hill to Hill networking program, which includes networking opportunities on Beacon Hill and a weeklong excursion to Capitol Hill, where current students meet with Stonehill alums and others to network.

Pre-law Advising

The Pre-Law Advising program is designed to provide important information to students regarding law school admissions and future careers in the law. There is no required academic program for pre-law students; however, there are a number of courses at Stonehill that may be of interest to students who wish to pursue the law as a career. The Pre-Law Advising program provides a step-by-step guide to help students learn about the legal industry, the Law School Admissions Council, preparing for the LSAT, and applying to law school.

Lessons here are supplemented with an impressive variety of opportunities outside of the classroom. For me, this meant summer research with a professor, internships in Boston and Madrid, and walking the streets of Washington D.C. and the jungles of Guatemala. This has prepared me for any path I choose to take after graduation, whether it be law school, Capitol Hill or abroad.
