The goal of the program is to give minority, low income and first generation college students the tools and support to pursue the study of law and become attorneys. The students have a simulated law school experience, have an internship with a judge and with private law firms or public defenders and receive a full spectrum of support services to help shape their law school applications and be successful on the LSAT and beyond.  The program (aside from a small housing payment) is free! Students may receive a stipend during the program.

The award-wining program has had tremendous success getting students accepted into law school and getting scholarships. (Students have received partial and full scholarships.) Some were accepted to schools considered the top ranked in the nation, like Yale and NYU. Students are matched with mentors to shepherd them from application to Bar and beyond. For the past two years, students have also had a private admissions fair where they interview with law school admissions deans. In short, this is an amazing program that can open many doors for the right students.
The deadline is extended until Wednesday, March 30th.

Paper applications are available in 4D06, the Behavioral Sciences Office. I will also attach an application to this email. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at
