MADISON – The University of Wisconsin Law School is now accepting applications for its inaugural James E. Jones Jr. Pre-Law Scholars Program, a summer immersion experience for students who have completed their freshman or sophomore year of college.

The Pre-Law Scholars (PLS) Program is designed to improve access to legal education for students from historically underrepresented groups and socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. Participants will spend four weeks in Madison – from June 6 through July 1 – learning about legal education and careers in law from a team of UW Law School experts. They will take introductory law courses featuring the Law School’s law-in-action approach from law professors, develop their oral and written legal advocacy skills with an interactive course taught by legal writing experts, get advice on applying to law school from admissions staff, network with local practitioners, and learn about areas of legal practice from career counselors.
