Pre-Law Advisors National Council


The Pre-Law Advisors National Council, or PLANC, is a national coordinating body bringing together leadership from the six regional pre-law advisors associations (APLAs) and select partner organizations to advance the pre-law advising profession and to enhance the delivery of pre-law services to students. The Board of Directors meets bi-annually and PLANC sponsors a national conference during U.S. Presidential election years.

The next PLANC Conference is scheduled for 2016.
