Pre-law conference to feature Beebe March 15

Henderson State University’s Department of Social Sciences will present the Sidney S. McMath Pre-Law Conference at noon March 15 in the Garrison Center Grand Ballroom. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe will be the keynote speaker.

Beebe was governor of Arkansas from 2007-2015. He entered private practice as an attorney before being elected to the Arkansas Senate in 1982. He served five terms in the Senate and was president of the Senate during his last term.

Beebe was elected attorney general in 2002, and defeated Asa Hutchinson in the governor’s race in 2006.

The conference will feature a buffet luncheon. Tickets are $1 and may be purchased by calling 870-230-5230.

A “mock law class” will follow Beebe’s presentation in the Garrison Center Ross Room.

The conference is funded by the Sidney McMath Endowment for Pre-Law.
