Applications for Explore Law 2023 will open in the spring.  Please check back then.

The purpose of Explore Law is to increase underrepresented college students’ access to legal education and law school by providing instruction surrounding the law school admissions process, LSAT preparation, law school classes, and legal career opportunities for J.D.s.

Are you thinking about going to law school? Are you choosing between law and another graduate program? Do you need more information about law school admission, the LSAT, law school classes or legal career paths? Would you like to network with a group of your peers who are also interested in studying law?

Undergraduate students regardless of undergraduate school, major, or state of residence may apply. College sophomores, juniors, and seniors who are members of groups underrepresented in the practice of law are encouraged to apply, including those who identify as members of a racial or ethnic group underrepresented in the practice of law; identify as having mental or physical disability; identify as LGBTQ+; or are first-generation college students (parents/guardians did not complete a bachelor’s degree).
