I am pleased to announce the Seventh Annual National Undergraduate Diversity Mock Trial Competition at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, Illinois.  The mock trial competition will bring three-member teams of sophomores to seniors from around the country to compete on Friday and Saturday, April 9th and 10th, 2010.  Individual competitors are also welcome, as teams will be assigned upon arrival.

Take a Survey and Get a Chance to Win $300 !!!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

“If you are planning on going to law school and have already taken your LSAT, you may be interested in taking the following brief survey which promises a cash award:

‘I am a faculty member at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. I am studying how pre-law undergraduates share information with each other. I am particularly interested in how peer students, like those at Middlebury share information.

To study this, I created a short on-line survey for pre-law students. I have already had over 60 responses, but I need to get to 100 for my research.

Any prelaw undergraduate who has taken the LSAT is eligible to participate.

I am offering a $300 prize to one randomly selected respondent.

Here is the survey:

Sincerely and happy holidays,
