Chance to shadow legal professionals raises charity funds

An auction for students considering careers in law to spend time with legal professionals raised $1,500 for a social service agency offering confidential intervention for families experiencing domestic violence.

The Pre-Law Student Society hosted its seventh annual “Bid on a Lawyer” gala on Feb. 1. Winners of a silent auction got the chance to see what a day in the life of a legal professional is really like. The proceeds benefited Hiatus House.

The club’s president, Gail O’Neil, says its membership is a diverse group of students who aspire to become lawyers. It hosts events through the year to educate undergraduates on the law school admissions process and careers in the legal field.
