UTB Pre-Law Academy, Judge Filemon B. Vela
Since 2003, the UTB Pre-Law Academy has provided a course of study for students who are interested in pursuing a career in law and are preparing for the LSAT, the law school entrance exam. The academy was started by the late Judge Filemon Vela, who encouraged all K-12 students to graduate from high school and continue their educations – and for some, to reach for a degree in law.
