Gulfport, Fla. – Middle and high school students from St. Petersburg’s YWCA gathered on the Stetson Law campus Saturday, August 23 to hear professor Dorothea Beane present the seminar, “Preparation for College and Beyond.”

Professor Beane is a strong advocate of early planning for college and graduate school. “It’s never too early to plan for success in college,” said Beane.
Her seminars provide information about resources to help finance college. The seminars also encourage parents, relatives and students to partner in the college admission process. “We hope these sessions will inspire students to excel in high school while learning effective tools to pave the way for academic pursuits,” said Beane.

Ninth grader Da-Niedre Tigg said the seminar helped reinforce the value of getting good grades. “I will study harder,” she said.

Professor Beane teaches Pre-Trial Practice, International Human Rights Law and Civil Procedure. Professor Beane has also worked extensively in the Hague on matters involving International Criminal Law and Human Rights.
