Attorney Wendy Woodfield is set to visit UVU as the first guest speaker in the Christine M. Durham Pre-Law Club lecture series. Her address is scheduled for Tuesday, July 20 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sorensen Student Center, room 213A.
Woodfield graduated from BYU’s J. Reuben Clark Law School magna cum laude. She then worked as an attorney for Bryan Cave, a leading and internationally known business and litigation firm. After three years of practicing law, Woodfield is now involved in the political process and currently works for the Morgan Philpot for Congress campaign.
Woodfield brings her experience in practicing law, along with her perspectives on law school, the legal field and the many ways attorneys can contribute to society.
The purpose of the Pre-Law Club is to prepare students for the LSAT, network with local public officials and attorneys, and actively engage students to take part in community service events by way of other organizations or by setting up events themselves with the assistance of the club.
This fall the club will also host a semiannual “Deans Nights,” where deans from more than forty law schools come to UVU to inform students about and recruit students for their law schools.
The objective of the lecture series is to help students network with prominent attorneys and public officials who live in Utah and Salt Lake Counties. The series also provides students with insights into the realities of practicing law after graduation.
The club will have monthly lectures on the third Tuesday of each month. The next lecture will be September 21.
