LSAC Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Programs
The LSAC PLUS Program offers aspiring legal professionals a window about what to expect in law school and supportive insights about the law school enrollment journey. Each year, LSAC partners with host law schools to provide selected participants with a unique immersive learning experience designed to prepare them for law school success. There is no cost to participate in the program, and each participant is eligible to receive a $1,000 stipend and fee waiver from LSAC. The PLUS Program is specifically aimed at rising undergraduate sophomores and juniors from minoritized groups who are underrepresented in the legal profession. However, anyone can apply and, during the application process, applicants have the opportunity to demonstrate ways in which they can benefit from the program.
