The Professional Responsibility & Ethics Program (PREP) is an award-winning program which develops continuing legal education (CLE) ethics training for the legal community. The program combines the attributes of an ethics institute and an ethics clinic, and has dedicated hundreds of student hours to public service and has educated thousands of members of the Bench & Bar.

In 2012, PREP was recognized by the ABA with its E. Smythe Gambrell Professionalism Award - the leading national award recognizing programs and projects contributing to the understanding and advancement of professionalism among lawyers.

In PREP, law students benefit from:

  • Exploring cutting-edge ethics issues such as the legal profession's use of outsourcing, social media, e-discovery and technology
  • Customizing programs for bar associations, nonprofit legal services organizations, government agencies, law firms and corporations
  • Drafting academic materials and presenting on-site at firms, agencies, and non-profits
  • Facilitating meaningful debate and networking with the local legal profession
  • Satisfying their writing or skills requirement and receiving course credit
