The Program will be:
May 20-June 13
All undergraduates not graduating in Spring 2013 are eligible to apply!
The Program will consist of:
- Classroom Experience — Daily classes are taught by law school professors and writing instructors. Lectures simulate first-year law classes and familiarize students with the functions of the American legal system. Writing workshops help students to develop their writing and communication skills.
- Law School Admissions Process — Students are given the opportunity to talk to the admissions staff and committee regarding the important aspects of the law school application process. This includes practical workshops on completing the application, writing personal statements, LSAT preparation, writing resumes and cover letters, financing law school, and individualized career planning.
- Careers in the Law — While the program is academic in nature, there are a number of exciting and enjoyable activities that take place outside of the classroom, such as: visits to the Florida Supreme Court and local law firms, moot court oral arguments, and visits from prominent attorneys in a variety of practice areas.
- There is no tuition or room and board charge for this program. Florida State Law provides all meals, residence-hall accommodations, course materials and a travel stipend to all participants. Students are responsible for their travel expenses to and from Tallahassee.
