My law school has never conducted any prelaw programs longer than one-day weekend sessions. Are we eligible to submit a proposal?

Yes! We strongly encourage law schools that have never conducted programs to submit proposals. The LSAC Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) team will work with interested law schools on the development and submission of proposals. Such support does not guarantee an award. Contact us at diversityoffice@LSAC.org for more information.

Historically, LSAC PLUS Programs have been 4 to 5 weeks in length. Do you have the same expectation about the program length for proposals submitted under this RFP?

There is no set length for program options under this RFP. The total length of your program should align with your proposed outcomes and description.

Can participants work while in the program?

Yes, you can decide to allow participants to work during your proposed program. However, depending on the rigor and length of your program, among other factors, you should be prepared to describe how your staff will balance student needs with expectations regarding participation.
