Summer Pre-Law Program
During the summer pre-law program, participants start the process of building the knowledge needed to be successful in a law school environment. Participants are introduced to law school pedagogy, structure of the legal system, and legal skills such as case briefing, essay writing, and legal analysis. The Summer 2023 pre-law program will take place Monday, June 5th – Wednesday, July 5th. All students who submit the seat deposit fee will receive an invitation to the program.
To accommodate the needs of committed and incoming first year students, SULC offers two-week sessions for students admitted to the full-time day and part-time day programs. Interested students in the full-time day and part-time day programs may choose to take part in one of these sessions that generally operate between 10am and 4pm. SULC, additionally, offers a three-week session for students admitted to the part-time evening program. Students who are interested in attending SULC in the evening program should choose the evening pre-law session that will operate between 6pm and 9pm.
Past participants have overwhelmingly stated that their participation in the summer pre-law program enhanced their confidence and preparedness to enter law school. In addition to the above, past participants have found getting to know classmates, teaching assistants, professors, and administration advantageous in their acclimation to the law school environment.
There is no application process. Shortly after a student has committed to Southern University Law Center by submitting a seat deposit, the Office of Admissions provides the Pre-Law Office with the student’s information and an invitation to participate is extended. Also, there is no fee to attend the program and all materials will be provided.
