Advising Appointments

Appointments with the pre-law advisor are made via Nexus by searching under Storrs and then Enrichment Programs. Alumni or others who do not have access to Nexus should email prelaw@uconn.edu with a list of times you are available and the Pre-Law Center will get back to you to schedule your appointment.

For all appointments, please be sure to include, with detail, the questions you need answered or issues you need to discuss with the advisor. If you need help with a personal statement, be sure to email an edited version of your personal statement when you schedule your meeting. This will help make your advising appointment as productive as possible.
