The Pre-Law Society is a San Diego State University student organization dedicated to providing SDSU undergraduates with an opportunity to learn about the field of law and career options.

Through the organization, members attend law forums, visit prospective law schools, and hear from guest speakers in the law field, including lawyers, judges, admission representatives, paralegal directors or test preparation organizations.

The organization’s president, Jesse Silgero, says the Pre-Law Society has helped him grow professionally and kept him focused on his main academic goal after college, which is getting into law school. He also says he has learned how to navigate the law school admissions process and explored different fields of law, all while making life-long friendships with peers in the organization.

What was your motivation for joining the Pre-Law Society?

I wanted to join the Pre-Law Society because I wanted to gain connections in law early on in my college career. I knew the earlier I networked with practicing attorneys and other like-minded students, the better. I knew that the Pre-Law Society would give me the platform to do so.
