PLUS offers a unique and unforgettable experience for college students who are interested in the legal profession. This rigorous three-week program is designed to prepare students for law school or a career in the legal profession by helping them to develop essential core competencies needed to succeed in these areas.

The PLUS program is a free, three-week summer program that will:
 
provide participants with a deeper understanding of legal education via the program’s rigorous doctrinal and experiential skills-based curriculum;
help participants develop essential core competencies needed to succeed in the law school application and admissions process, as well as insight into navigating the process; and
expose students to a wide range of career paths within the legal profession.
 
The program will cover the cost of tuition, room in a residence hall, required course materials and other expenses. Participants are paid a stipend to offset some of their meals and other expenses. The program does not pay for any transportation expenses.
