Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Programs

LSAC’s Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) programs are targeted, but not restricted, to college students from racial and ethnic minority 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.

Interested students should contact the schools directly for application information, including deadlines and selection criteria.
