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 pre-law program takes place in June and July.
In order 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 9am and 5pm. SULC, additionally, offers three-week sessions for students admitted to the part-time evening program. Students who are interested in attending SULC in the evening program should choose one of the evening pre-law sessions 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.
