The students of Georgetown College may join the Lambert Law Society, a student organization that provides a forum for discussion, education, and preparation for law school and/or a legal career. The Lambert Law Society invites lawyers, judges, lobbyists, and politicians to speak to the group about their law-related careers. Every year, the Lambert Law Society sponsors a Kentucky Law School Forum where the Deans of Admission from each of the state’s law schools speak about admissions, financial aid, and other topics related to the admissions process. Law professors and former and current law students have also spoken to the group about life in law school. On occasion, the Lambert Law Society will visit local courtrooms to observe the legal process first-hand, and to speak with those involved. The lighter side of the law is revealed at the Lambert Law Society’s social events, including film nights, featuring such classic legal movies as The Paper Chase, The Firm, and others. Every fall semester, the Lambert Law Society sponsors a “Good Luck” pizza party for those students who plan to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) in October.
MODEL UNITED NATIONS
The Georgetown Model United Nations course promotes cultural understanding and diversity by encouraging student participation in model UN conferences, such as the American Model United Nations Conference in Chicago. Conference activities include the role-playing of a country and its foreign policy interests. A model UN course is offered during the fall semester. Dr. Melissa Scheier serves as the director of the Model United Nations program.
