Interested in taking law school classes over the summer? Check out the Prelaw PLUS Program

Each year, as part of the Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program, LSAC partners with member law schools to provide selected students with a unique immersive learning experience designed to prepare them for law school success. The LSAC PLUS Program is specifically aimed at undergraduate students and prospective law school applicants one year away from applying who are from minoritized groups that are underrepresented in the legal profession. Host law schools are currently accepting applications for their 2022 programs.
 
The PLUS Program will help participants explore their interest in law, understand the skills needed to succeed in law school, gain insights to the legal profession and future career options, and learn more about navigating the law school admission process. Participants will also build confidence and community through supportive networking and mentoring relationships with diverse legal professionals, faculty, and peers as they immerse in a program that specifically acknowledges and addresses the challenges faced by minoritized students on the path to law school and the legal profession.
 
There is no cost to apply or to attend the program if selected. PLUS participants who successfully complete the program will receive a $1,000 stipend and an LSAC fee waiver. LSAC will provide laptops and internet access for admitted students who require such assistance to participate in an online program.
