LSAC Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars Program

At this time, out of concern for the health and safety of our community, as well as the uncertainty of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this summer’s residential program.

The University of Oregon LSAC PLUS Program provides an introduction to, and the opportunity to practice and enhance, the skills required for success in law school and the legal profession.

The PLUS Program is generously sponsored by the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) and is provided at no cost to participants. All eligible participants will receive free room and board for the duration of the program at the University of Oregon, and a $1,000 stipend.

The program is primarily designed to support undergraduate students from groups historically underrepresented in the legal profession, those with socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, and students facing other significant barriers to entering into legal practice. Any students currently enrolled in their freshman or sophomore year at a four-year college or university, technical college, or community college are welcome to apply.

The PLUS Program is a rigorous, four-week academic experience that offers:

  • Expert instruction, information, and strategies designed to increase preparedness for entrance to, and success in, law school and the legal profession;
  • Opportunities for hands-on practice, skill development, and essential feedback to increase confidence that participants belong and can succeed in law school; and
  • Community engagement, volunteer experiences, resources, and networking to gain exposure to members of the legal profession and better understand the constituents they serve.

 

The Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program is a grant program sponsored by the Law School Admission Council and administered through the University of Oregon School of Law.
