Summer Pre-Law Program, Boston University; Info Session 2/16; Deadline to Apply 3/15

Greetings and Happy New Year from Boston University School of Law! We are excited to announce that in summer 2023, under the LSAC Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program, we will again host the BU Summer Prelaw Academy (BU-SPLA), a residential four-week program focused on countering structural and environmental forces that unevenly tax students of color and first-generation college students. The program intentionally addresses the challenges faced by minoritized students who are underrepresented in the legal profession. Boston University School of Law is proud to continue to be a part of this exciting and innovative program. Our 2022 program was an enormous success, and we are incredibly excited to host a new cohort of students in 2023. BU-SPLA will expose students to foundational law school coursework, critical race theory, and experiential learning. Student will also learn about the law school admissions process and be mentored while working on a personal statement, a diversity statement, and a resume. And of course, students will enjoy social outings in Boston and the opportunity to build community with their peers. BU Law faculty and staff will come together to welcome, teach, and support BU-SPLA students and offer a glimpse into what it is like to be a student at BU Law. BU-SPLA will take place here at BU Law’s modern, spacious law complex from June 6–30, 2023. The application will open on January 16, 2023, and the deadline to apply is March 15, 2023. I hope you will share this exciting opportunity with your students. I will be hosting two informational webinars on January 24, 2023, and February 15, 2023. The links to register are below.
