June 16 – July 13, 2013
LSAC’s DiscoverLaw.org PLUS Program is an immersive four-week (June 16 – July 13, 2013) summer program for up to 20 students entering their sophomore or junior year in fall 2013. Application components must be submitted by mail as one packet postmarked by Wednesday, April 10, 2013.
The program focuses on the inclusion of the following groups:
- students from colleges or universities with historical or significant populations of African American, Asian American, Latino, & American Indian students;
- who are the first generation in their family to attend college;
- who experience significant financial challenges; and
- student populations which are historically underrepresented in law school.
Preference will be given to students who are DiscoverLaw.org registrants.
Instruction and room and board will be provided free-of-charge. Participants will be housed in on-campus, community-style residential halls, and will have access to campus dining facilities. Two resident assistants will provide support and mentorship to participants.
Participants also will receive a $900 stipend and up to $200 in financial assistance for travel to and from the program.
The School of Law will collaborate with students’ home institutions for possible course credit. Course credit would be limited to a single course (additional costs may apply) and would not correspond with the stipend. The participant’s stipend is based on 20 hours of work per week and will set off loss of income from their inability to have a summer job while they are participating in the program.
