Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Programs

This is important: All of us at LSAC are saddened by the COVID-19 outbreaks affecting so many communities around the world. Our hearts go out to all of the individuals and families that have been affected. In response to this evolving emergency situation and at the guidance from public health authorities, LSAC and the 2020 PLUS Program law schools have made the difficult decision to cancel this summer’s residential program.

LSAC has been working closely with the 2020 PLUS Program law schools to explore alternative ways to deliver the experience and the learning offered by the PLUS Program.

LSAC’s Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) programs are targeted, but not restricted, to college students from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in the legal profession. The programs are designed for students in the first two years of college.

The four-week programs provide an intense focus on the skills required to succeed in law school, the law school admission process, and a legal career. There is no cost to attend, and participants receive a $1,000 stipend.

2020 PLUS Online

We are pleased to announce that we are launching LSAC PLUS Online in July. Seven of our member law schools will host, with LSAC’s support, a free, 3-4 weeks’ long, remote learning program for a limited number of students that applied to one of the 2020 residential programs.

Students who have been selected to participate in LSAC PLUS Online have been assigned to one of the participating host law schools, with LSAC to confirm their placement prior to the start of the program.
