Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Programs

This is important. LSAC continues to monitor guidance from public health authorities regarding the safety of in-person settings. A decision will be made about the format of the LSAC PLUS program (residential vs. alternative) in early 2021.

The LSAC PLUS program, in partnership with designated host law schools, offers an immersive law school experience. The curriculum focuses on the academic skills you will need to succeed in law school as well as detailed guidance on navigating the admission process. The program will also help you explore your career options after law school and provide invaluable networking opportunities along the way.

The LSAC PLUS programs are open to everyone but are specifically aimed at groups who are underrepresented in the legal profession. There is no cost to attend, and participants receive a $1,000 stipend.

This summer LSAC supported remote learning programs (PLUS Online) at seven law schools for 185 undergraduate students. Students participated in a doctrinal legal course, a legal writing course, and sessions about the law school admission process and the legal profession. In addition, students were invited to participate in LSAC’s Prelaw Focus: PLUS Webinar Series with topics such as “An Introduction to the LSAT” and “Navigating the Law School Admission Process.”
