TTU PreLaw Program


What is the PreLaw Program?

The TTU PreLaw Program is a structured program that prepares undergraduate students to be exceptional applicants to a school of law. The PreLaw Program serves to emphasize three essential areas identified by law school professionals nationwide:

  • Writing and speaking with comprehension and clarity
  • Understanding social institutions and human nature
  • Thinking creatively and analytically

What Will I Do as a PreLaw Student?

As a PreLaw student, you will be invited to participate in events that will help you to become an exceptional applicant for Law School. PreLaw Program Assistants and Ambassadors, are easily accessible to answer questions and address concerns students have about their decision to attend Law School. Further, the Program will serve to familiarize students with the essential aspects of the Law School Application Process: LSACLSAT, GPA, Personal Statement, Letters of Recommendation, and Resume.

Though attending events is not mandatory, it is strongly encouraged that students participate early and often during their undergraduate education. Learning the Law School Timeline  and utilizing the resources presented through the PreLaw Program, you will be clearly directed on how to complete the necessary steps to achieve your goal of attending Your Best Fit Law School.

     You have the drive and you know the destination. We can provide the direction you will need to get there.

Neal W. Spradlin

Neal was born just outside of Cleveland, Ohio but came to Texas as fast as he could, growing up in Rockwall, Texas. After graduating magna cum laude from Austin College, Neal attended Texas Tech University School of Law and the Rawls College of Business earning his J.D./M.B.A. After law school, he gained valuable litigation experience as an Assistant Attorney General in the Law Enforcement Defense Division, defending state law enforcement employees and their agencies in federal and state court. In May 2014, he left the Texas Attorney General’s Office to join the Lubbock County Criminal District Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted a wide-array of criminal cases, taking to trial numerous misdemeanor and felony offenses. After joining Crenshaw, Dupree and Milam, Neal now focuses primarily on civil litigation matters, representing insurance companies and their insureds, as well as businesses and individuals. With his previous prosecutorial experience, Neal is also comfortable and confident taking on criminal defense cases. Moreover, as a trained and qualified mediator, Neal has the ability to aptly resolve disputes between parties. Away from the office, Neal and his wife, Libby, spend most of their time raising their daughter, Norah. The Spradlins are happy to call Lubbock home.
