Free Summer Pre-Law Program, Chicago-Kent Law School

Chicago-Kent College of Law at Illinois Tech is sponsoring a resident Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program fromSunday, June 4 through Friday, June 23, 2023. We hope you will share information about our program with students who might be interested in going to law school. Currently, the program is scheduled to take place in person. However, we will continue to monitor the CDC guidelines and adjust our program if it becomes necessary to ensure the safety of all involved. 

PLUS offers a unique and unforgettable experience for college students who are interested in the legal profession. This rigorous three-week program is designed to prepare students for law school or a career in the legal profession by helping them to develop essential core competencies needed to succeed in these areas. The program targets undergraduate college students from groups that are underrepresented in the legal profession. 

The PLUS program is a free, three-week summer program that will: 

  • provide participants with a deeper understanding of legal education via the program’s rigorous doctrinal and experiential skills-based curriculum;
  • help participants develop essential core competencies needed to succeed in the law school application and admissions process, as well as insight into navigating the process; and
  • expose students to a wide range of career paths and professionals within the legal profession. 

Interested students can access the PLUS website at PLUS Information to complete the online application. Read a recent article about the continued success of the Chicago-Kent PLUS program:
