Radford University has announced that it will be hosting a dinner for faculty, staff, students, alumni and members of the local legal community to celebrate the founding of a new Prelaw Society at the university.
The newly founded society will be linked closely to the Prelaw fraternity at Radford.
“The purpose of the Prelaw Society is not to supplant the
Prelaw fraternity, but to support it by providing a vehicle through which not
only students, but also members of the professional legal community, as well as
alumni and friends of the institution can join in supporting our prelaw
students,” Katherine Hawkins, dean of the College of Humanities and Behavioral
The main goal of the Prelaw Society is a simple one, but
ambitious all the same.
“Our goal is to educate students about the role of law in a
free nation founded on constitutional principles, as well as about the
profession of law,” Hawkins said. “We also recognize it is incumbent upon us to
work together with the legal profession to increase the diversity of the
membership in that profession.”
Any student can join the Prelaw Society, no matter what
major they have chosen.
