What Extra Circulars can I do that put me over the edge show my passion for law?

I've thought about

- Mock Trial

- Debate Team

- Teen court (Participate on the jury as a teen)

- English Honor Society

- National Honor Society

- TASP (super competitive program)

- Pre-law Club (Founder)

- Law Internship (For school credit/ Hours)

sounds good! honestly those are all good ones to be in. i’m on the track for intl law so i can confirm. though if your school already has mock trial they probably won’t let you start a law club since they are essentially the same thing, fyi

I would say mock trial/model UN/debate are the basis of nearly everyone who pursues political science/law, so definitely start with those. The law internship or founding a law club would be good next steps, so make sure you do something like that so that you're different from everyone else applying pre-law!
