LSAC Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Programs

“A legal education can open the door to a wide range of career opportunities. The LSAC PLUS Program offers aspiring legal professionals a window about what to expect in law school and supportive insights about the law school enrollment journey.

Each year, LSAC partners with host law schools (see 2021 participating schools below) to provide selected participants with a unique immersive learning experience designed to prepare them for law school success. There is no cost to participate in the program, and each participant is eligible to receive a $1,000 stipend and fee waiver from LSAC.

The PLUS Program is specifically aimed at rising undergraduate sophomores and juniors from minoritized groups who are underrepresented in the legal profession. However, anyone can apply and, during the application process, applicants have the opportunity to demonstrate ways in which they can benefit from the program.

The PLUS curriculum will help you explore your interest in the law, understand the skills needed to succeed in law school, gain insights on the legal profession and future career options, and learn more about navigating the law school admission process. You will build confidence and community through supportive networking and mentoring relationships with diverse legal professionals, faculty, and peers as you immerse yourself in a program that specifically acknowledges and addresses the challenges faced by minoritized students on the path to law school and the legal profession.”
