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. We are working closely with the law schools to explore alternative ways to deliver the experience and learning offered by the PLUS Program.
If you submitted an application for a 2020 PLUS Program, the law school may contact you directly regarding your application. We will share any program updates as more information becomes available.
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.
Interested students should contact the schools directly for application information, including deadlines and selection criteria.
