High school students interested in a career in law can attend Wilkes University’s Law Day at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 23. The event will be held via Zoom.
The keynote speaker will be the Honorable Judge Fred A. Pierantoni III. Pierantoni graduated from Wilkes in 1980 and currently serves as a judge in the Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas.
Kyle Kreider, pre-law program advisor and political science professor at Wilkes University, will interview representatives from Penn State Law and Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law. The interviews will focus on accelerated 3+3 programs which allow exceptional students to earn both a bachelor’s degree and J.D. in just six years.
The event will also feature a roundtable discussion and Q&A with Wilkes alumni who went on to law school.
“In our ever-changing world, a law degree provides people with enormous transferable skills that can take them into many different careers,” says Kreider. “Law Day can be a first step in that endeavor.”
