The Pre-Law Club participates in many exciting activities on campus each year including service, hosting Law School recruiters, competing in Moot Court, sponsoring PowerScore study sessions and providing assistance for the LSAT (the Law School Admissions Test). Check out the Calendar of Events below to see what is planned and to stay updated on important dates.

The TTU Pre-Law Club offers informational sessions for regional law school forums. In state, Belmont, Memphis, and the University of Tennessee, Knoxville send representatives to Tech at least once a year with some visiting regularly. The Pre-Law Club also offers a PowerScore LSAT study prep session (at a discounted rate to dues-paying members of the Pre-Law Club), with instructors who have scored in the top percentiles on the LSAT, coming to our campus at least once a year- more sessions can be available depending upon student registration. Coming this spring 2013, we will also be one of the only undergraduate institutions in the state of Tennessee to offer an undergraduate bLAWg, where Pre-Law Club students can contact our recent TTU alumni who are in law school or who are already practicing attorneys to ask their Pre-Law advice. Watch for links on this page!

For the past five years, Tech Pre-Law students have competed in the AMC3 (Annual Moot Court) statewide Moot Court competition which has been added to the TISL (Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature) fall program. Tennessee Tech has done exceptionally well. Students- from various majors- won the state competition in 2009, won Top Lawyer in 2010, won Top Petitioner in 2008, won the Attorney General selection in 2011 and, as of 2012, TTU is only school to have made it to the AMC3 semi-finals all five years!
