On October 26, 2021, Erin Hall, Assistant Director of JD Admissions at Scalia Law, held a zoom session on both programs. A recording of that session is below. If you want to apply to Scalia Law under either of these special programs, please listen to the recording carefully.

On March 4, 2021, the Patriot Pre-Law Program and the Schar Pre-Law Group hosted Dean Ken Randall, the leader of the Antonin Scalia Law School. Dean Randall is an accomplished administrator who sent the University of Alabama Law School rocketing upward in the rankings. We also hosted Sabrina Huffman, Interim Assistant Dean for Admissions. Both of our guests did a marvelous job of informing our students about what kind of student Scalia Law is looking for, and what students can do to stand out. They discussed many other topics as well.

Please take a moment to watch this video, as you are sure to benefit from our conversation with Dean Randall and Dean Huffman.


This interview is with Iman Naieem, a second-year student at George Washington University Law School. She has a fascinating story to tell about her family’s move from Afghanistan to the U.S. after the Soviet invasion in 1980, and she describes the habits of mind that made her an exceptional student at Mason. She is also an outstanding student at GW, having secured a summer internship with a law firm in D.C. I hope you enjoy our discussion with Iman!



Karla Alvarado graduated from George Mason University in May 2020 with a degree in Criminology, and she is now a first-year student at the University of Maryland Carey Law School. A native of El Salvador, Karla faced enormous challenges from the time she was a child: finding a way to the United States with her family, overcoming harsh living conditions, navigating the language barrier, and balancing family obligations with her school work. Despite these obstacles, Karla achieved an excellent grade point average as an undergraduate. When it was time to apply to law school, she encountered another challenge: the Law School Admissions Test, a standardized exam that provides an advantage to students with financial resources. Karla overcame that barrier as well. Now she is on her way to becoming a lawyer.
