Barry University School of Law is pleased to once again offer “Barry Boot Camp," an intensive series of LSAT prep workshops offered over the course of four weekends. The workshops have been designed to complement your preparation for the December LSAT exam. Barry Boot Camp is being offered exclusively to students who have applied to Barry Law for admission in Spring or Fall 2015. The workshops are offered free of charge!
Dean Leticia M. Diaz created Barry Boot Camp with the Barry Law mission in mind:
- A commitment to serving our local community through education,
- Promoting social responsibility through service,
- Enhancing cultural, social and intellectual diversity in the legal profession, and
- Supporting intellect, growth and development.
Barry Boot Camp is being taught by Lori Wurtzel, a former Public Defender with almost a decade of experience in standardized test preparation. The workshops will take place each Saturday from November 1 – November 2, 2014, on the Barry Law campus. There is a limited number of seats available, and acceptance will be based on an application process.
Requirements to apply:
- Current admission application for Spring or Fall 2015 on file prior to November 1, 2014.
- Submission of a one-page essay on one of the following prompts:
- Part of Barry’s mission is to nurture cultural, social, and intellectual diversity that reflects a global world view. Given your personal background, describe an experience that illustrates what you would bring to the diversity of Barry Law, or an encounter that demonstrated the importance of diversity to you.
- The road from prospective law student to practicing attorney can be a bumpy one, and even the brightest students will encounter some obstacles along the way. Recall an incident or time when you experienced failure or serious setback and discuss how that affected you, and more importantly, what lessons you learned.
3. Submission of a short paragraph detailing your plans to prepare for the December LSAT outside of attending this Boot Camp.
