Pre-Law Society is hosting a tutoring event on Thursday, April 8 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. via Zoom. The guest speaker, Dr. David Cohen, New Jersey Kaplan’s LSAT teacher for nearly 30 years, will advise attendees on what to expect for the LSATs.

Dr. Cohen will address general topics such as how to prepare and what to study for the LSAT. Some specific topics he will cover include logic games, logical reasoning, reading comprehension, how to sign up for the LSAT, and how much it costs. He will also talk about applying to law school.

The Pre-Law Society co-founders, Hannah Florey, junior English literature major, and Felicia Dusha, senior English literature major, organized multiple events so far this semester, which have been open to all Pitt-Greensburg students.

One event included four Pitt Law students, freshman Joe Ferari, sophmore Kallie Vento, and juniors Jacqulyn McCarthy and Luciana Sena, who provided first-hand experience of law school at Oakland’s graduate school. Pre-Law Society also co-hosted an event with the Criminal Justice Club on CJ Day where Westmoreland County’s Judge John J. Driscoll, District Attorney John Peck, and public defender John Sweeney shared their experiences as law professionals.

Attendees had the opportunity to ask guest speakers questions at both events. There will also be a Q&A section during the LSAT tutoring event.

Students who are interested in learning more about law school or the legal field can visit Pitt-Greensburg’s Pre-Law Group page, which addresses many disciplines and opportunities in the Greensburg area for students pursuing law. There is also a Criminal Justice Opportunities page with a list of organizations that are intertwined with the law discipline.
