Prelaw Advising Appointments

Due to increased demand for appointments and upcoming final exams, new prelaw appointments will not be scheduled until summer school begins. When making an appointment request, please indicate your availability starting the week of June 3, 2019.

The Student Learning Assistance Center (SLAC) Director, Dr. Carol Dochen, is the sole/coordinating Law School Admission Council (LSAC) prelaw advisor for Texas State University and is assisted by her colleague, René LeBlanc, also an LSAC prelaw advisor. Together they help prelaw students create individualized Law School Admission Test (LSAT) preparation plans using SLAC materials, research and select appropriate law schools, and complete personal statements, addenda, and resumes for their Credential Assembly Service (CAS) file.

When you are ready to schedule an initial advising appointment, please fill out the Prelaw Intake Form.

(If you have previously met with Dr. Dochen &/or Ms. LeBlanc, please email Dr. Dochen directly to schedule follow-up appointments at

SLAC’s prelaw advisors recommend that students considering law school seek guidance from faculty members on choosing rigorous academic courses that will help prepare them for law school, finding internship placement, for sharing their personal law school experiences, and for help locating places to gain experience with practicing attorneys.
