Legal Speaker Series: Rural and agricultural law

Submitted by Cadence Ciesielski

Join the Office of Pre-Law Advising for its next legal speaker of the fall semester. Professor Shawn Leisinger and several Washburn Law students will discuss opportunities in the rural practice of law at 4 p.m. today, Oct. 20, via Zoom

Washburn Law students will discuss their externship opportunities through the Hansen Foundation at Washburn Law School. The Hansen Foundation works with Washburn to place law students in rural communities. The students work with a local attorney who conducts a private law practice, works for the government or a nonprofit organization, serves as a judge, or is engaged in a legal career. Students receive a stipend of $5,000 for expenses during the externship and a tuition scholarship of $4,320 for six credit hours for a concurrent course, Rural Practice Externship.

This is a great opportunity to hear directly from law students and a professor about opportunities available at Washburn. Students are welcome to join and ask questions about law school in general or Washburn in particular.
