Pre-Law Society

In addition to the 120 or so events the LEAP Center participates in every year, the Center also oversees three distinct student organizations: the LEAP Ambassadors, the Moot Court Team, and the Pre-Law Society.

The Pre-Law Society is the largest of such groups on campus.  With 45 members–despite only being in its first year–the organization hosts speakers, puts on workshops, and participates in many pre-law activities across the campus and beyond.


This past semester, our speakers included: Rhonda Beassie, Attorney for the Texas State University System and former Associate Dean of Career Development at UH Law School;

Rhonda Beassie, Pre-Law Society, LEAP Center, SHSU

…David Weeks, District Attorney for Walker County;

David Weeks, Pre-Law Society, SHSU, LEAP Center

…and Nicole Tarrence, Associate Dean of Recruitment at South Texas College of Law Houston.

The dues for the Pre-Law Society are $20 a semester, plus a $35 initiation fee for the student’s first semester (this fee pays for t-shirt and cords).  For more information, contact the Pre-Law Society’s advisor Mike Yawn at
