Pre-Law LEAP

 

Pre-Law LEAP is a great way to start your college career and make you a more competitive applicant for the legal profession.

As a participant in Pre-Law LEAP, you will take courses with students who share similar career and educational goals and diverse backgrounds. You will be able to develop a close relationship with your professor and a peer advisor, who will help you take advantage of the many enjoyable activities and programs the U offers.

First Year – In your first semester of the program, you take a Humanities class and read the memoirs of attorneys, judges and those involved in important legal cases. In the second semester, you take a class on the role of law in society and study legal decisions and their impact on society. These classes will fulfill your humanities general education and university diversity requirements.

Second Year – You hear guest lecturers from judges and attorneys with various legal specialties and observe actual cases in court. You take a logic course to help you learn how to think as attorneys think and to prepare for logic questions on the LSAT.

Third Year – Includes a semester-long service project related to legal services and research-and-writing classes that will help you understand what different law schools offer and help you present yourself to law school selection committees.
