Hi Ms. JD Pre-Law! Here's an summer opportunity at the University of Wisconsin Law School that you might want to check out:
The DiscoverLaw.org Pre-Law Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program at the University of Wisconsin Law School is a four-week summer immersion program that allows students to explore legal education and careers in law and to help them succeed in applying to, enrolling in, and graduating from law school.
Held at the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus, the activities in this program include: taking introductory law courses, taught by UW Law School professors, attending personal and professional development workshops and ganing hands-on experience with the legal system (such as a mock client intake, or attending a criminal plea and sentencing).
The PLUS program is offered at no cost, and participants will receive tuition, free room and board for the duration of the program, and a $1,000 stipend. They will also receive a fee waiver from the Law School Admissions Council for the LSAT and Credential Assembly Service.
Sophomores and juniors. Preference is given to students who have signed up for DiscoverLaw.org.
June 5 - June 30, 2017
The deadline is: Friday, April 14, 2017
