PLUS Students Participate in Virtual Panel Discussion

Students attending the Alabama LSAC Pre-Law Undergraduate Scholars Program participated in a virtual panel discussion today with lawyers who work for Bradley.

Dawn Sharff, the managing partner of Bradley’s Birmingham office, welcomed the students and provided a brief overview of the firm and its 10 offices. Attorneys, including Stanley Blackmon (’15), answered questions about several issues – from whether it matters which major a student chooses in college to what it’s like to work at a large firm to how to strike a balance between career and personal interests.

Plus Program participants listen to lawyers from Bradley.

Panelists encouraged participants to pursue their interests in college, discussed the structure of law firms, and shared their best and worst days at work.

The PLUS program is funded by a $300,000 grant from the Law School Admission Council. It helps prepare students for the law school admission process, success in law school, and careers in the legal profession.

This year, the Law School is hosting the PLUS program for 25 students who live in 17 states. Due to the pandemic, the program has moved entirely online.
