Legal Studies Activities
The Justinian Order of St. John Fisher College is an academic and legal society intended to create collegiality among Fisher graduates professionally involved with the law. Members have the opportunity to gather socially, bond professionally, and pass on the legacy of Fisher’s legal scholarship to young alumni and students.
The Justinian Order hosts a civic luncheon each May and a medal reception every other year. In addition, members of the Justinian Order regularly visit campus to speak to classes and mentor students.
If law school is in your future, you'll want to join the College's Pre-Law Association. The group offers you a closer look at a career in law through mock trials and workshops. Fisher law alumni are on hand to help get you familiar with the Law School Admission Test (LSAT), as well as law school applications and admissions procedures.
For more information on internship and experiential learning opportunities available to Fisher students, visit the internship page on the Center for Career and Academic Planning website.
