Texas Tech Law hosted the fifth TTU Pre-Law Academy this month. The Pre-Law Academy is a four-week multidisciplinary program designed to prepare undergraduate students for the competitive law school admissions process and the demands of law school, while also helping students to create a vision for themselves as law students and lawyers. Students selected for the Academy are required to take three courses for a total of seven credit hours, and they also have the option to participate in an internship in the legal profession.
Associate Dean Wendy-Adele Humphrey (’01), along with Co-Director Dr. Katie Langford, Associate Professor of Communication Studies, taught the Academy courses, which introduced critical concepts such as legal rhetoric, analysis, and advocacy.
Throughout the Academy, both professors use creativity in the classroom to stimulate student learning. With that in mind, Dean Humphrey discusses the importance of CREAC—the “layers” of the discussion section in a legal memo—with her “Liquid Lasagna” skit.
