Tufts Welcomes Pre-Law Advisor Dovie King
Interested in law? As the new pre-law advisor at Tufts, my role is to help students and alumni from any discipline, school, or major to explore career options in the legal profession. It doesn’t matter if you are a new student, recent graduate, or well into your professional career. If law interests you, it’s never too early or late to learn how to explore and pursue it.

I have attended law school, passed the bar exam in Massachusetts, New York, and California and had a rewarding career as a lawyer for over 20 years. I have also taught legal studies courses to undergraduates and advised students at Harvard Law School and Thomas Jefferson School of Law about careers in public interest, international human rights, government, the judiciary, in-house and private practice. My experience includes networking, publishing articles and serving on the Board of Directors of the American Constitution Society – San Diego Lawyer Chapter, La Raza Lawyers, and the American Bar Association’s Immigration Justice Project. Currently, I am a member of the Women’s Bar Association and I chair the Human Rights, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee in my town.

As a Spanish-speaker, first generation graduate and the daughter of immigrants, I am interested in advising all students and alumni from diverse backgrounds. My goal is to provide practical advice about the LSAT, law school admissions, law school applications and career options tailored to your specific needs and interests. I am available to meet with you by appointment or during walk-in hours. 

I look forward to helping you on your journey!

The Landscape of Law School Admissions in 2022
The Coronavirus pandemic has significantly changed the landscape for law school admissions in unprecedented ways. In 2021, for example, we saw a dramatic increase in both law school applications and the incoming class size of first year law students. The class of 2021 was also the most racially diverse group ever, representing an important milestone in the law school landscape.
But what does this mean for law school admissions in 2022?
Though some of the same forces affecting last year’s trends in law school admission continue to be present in 2022, there are signs that this year’s cycle will be less crowded, according to recent statistics by the Law School Admissions Council. Still, the process will continue to be competitive and, since no one can definitively predict the future, the general rule of thumb is to prepare much earlier than usual to make sure your application materials are as strong as possible.
We also encourage you to make an appointment with Tufts Pre-Law Advisor Dovie King to discuss your options.
