The Center for Pre-Law Advising (CPLA) seeks to help increase access to as well as equity and diversity within the field of law by providing excellent advising, programming, and other career development resources to UW-Madison students and alumni – no time limit! We serve advisees at all stages of the process of considering, preparing for, or applying to law school.

Events: Check out CPLA events and other career and academic events! We also encourage you to sign up for our newsletter (below) and follow us on Instagram for up-to-date information.

1:1 Advising: We conduct 1:1 appointments remotely or in person at our office in the Middleton Building, Suite 205, 1305 Linden Dr. All interested UW-Madison students and alumni are welcome and encouraged to meet with us in the spring semester. We are also happy to talk about career exploration, involvement, law school selection, financing law school, the LSAT, and more. If you are planning to apply soon and would like us to give feedback on essays, resumes, or other application document drafts, we are happy to do that in an appointment. You can send us the documents ahead of time or bring it to your appointment. Current students, please schedule via Starfish. Alumni, please email us at information@prelaw.wisc.edu.

Feeling stressed out by the law school application process? We recently had UHS join us for a workshop where they shared helpful advice for anyone feeling the mental and emotional impact of putting together law school applications.  While it is framed in the context of writing personal statements and addenda, we feel it is a helpful 30 minute recording for anyone feeling the emotional toll of going through this process.


Are you a current or prospective freshman? Future attorneys major in all areas and all schools & colleges at UW-Madison! We encourage you to start your pre-law advising journey by exploring majors and academic fields of interest via the UW-Madison Guide.  You can also find answers to frequently asked questions on our First Year Students page.

Questions? Please email us at information@prelaw.wisc.edu.



The Center for Pre-Law Advising newsletter is the place where we share upcoming events, opportunities, and updates for students and alumni planning to go to law school or just exploring law related careers. Look for it in your inbox on the third Thursday of every month!
