          • Additionally, all applicants must either be currently enrolled in or accepted to an accredited law school, or a current undergraduate student with the intention to go to law school.

          • Fall Semester- July 31st
          • Spring Semester- November 30th

            Topic 01

            Insurers base premiums in part on the risk they assume covering a particular customer, home, and/or vehicle. The lower a risk posed by the policyholder and his home/vehicle, the lower the premium you'll be assigned. Tell us some steps you take to minimize risk in your day-to-day activities and describe your strategy for avoiding risk in the future.

            Topic 02

            Advances in technology have changed insurance in many ways. One of the latest is the introduction of pay-as-you-drive insurance, which monitors driving habits and offers discounts for them. Critics cite privacy concerns, but so far few consumers seem worried.
