MELBOURNE, FLA.—Florida Institute of Technology Professor Robert Taylor, chair of the Department of Humanities and Communication, has formed the Humanities Pre-Law Advisory Group to help guide the university’s Pre-Law option bachelor’s degree. The new program provides the courses needed to meet the entrance requirements of law schools.
The advisory group includes noted Brevard County attorneys who have volunteered to help direct and mentor students of the program. Members are: Brooke Deratany-Goldfarb of Peaceful Beach Mediation and Collaboration; Clarissa E. Harrell of the Law Offices of Clarissa E. Harrell, P.A.; Lawrence Kenkel of the Volk Law Offices, P.A.; Edward Kinberg of Kinberg and Associates; Hubert Normile of GrayRobinson Attorneys at Law; and President-Elect of the Brevard County Bar Association Timi D. Tucker of Tucker Mitnik Professional Association.
“Our Pre-Law curriculum includes the preparation for law school recommended by the American Bar Association. A vital part of that preparation is the mentoring and socialization of students for the field. We are so pleased that our advisory group and many other attorneys in the area have offered to teach, advise, and guide our pre-law students,” said Mary Beth Kenkel, dean, College of Psychology and Liberal Arts.
Undergraduates selecting this degree program are able to gain a thorough grounding in a variety of academic disciplines applicable to graduate study in law. Students work with the prelaw adviser to select a course of study customized for their own needs and interests.
