CMASS Law Night

Wilder Hall 201
Hear the success stories of ALANA students from UConn Law and Western New England Law, and get your questions answered by the admissions directors from both schools (as well as your faithful pre-law advisor). Brought to you in part by the Center for Multicultural Advancement and Student Success (CMASS).
You’ll definitely want to hear UMass alum Carrie Pollak (Legal Studies and English ’04, Cornell Law ’08) talk about her experiences in both a very large law firm in Boston, and her current mid-size firm in Ithaca, New York. Attorney Pollak, a former Army National Guard soldier, practices in the areas of environmental law and land use regulation.
