Penn State undergrads invited to get a jump on law school
March 17, 2010
Thinking about going to law school? If you’re a Penn State undergrad heading into your junior or senior year, don’t delay. There are only two weeks left before the April 1 deadline to register for an incredible opportunity to discover what it’s like to be a law student. From learning how to brief a case and analyze a statute to making an argument in court, “Explore Law” will give you the tools you need to succeed as a law student. In addition to improved LSAT scores and critical thinking skills, participants in the program also benefit from having an advisor to help them through every step of the process up to law school admission.
Current Penn State Law student, Cassandra Matos, who attended a similar program two years ago, credits the introduction to law program with being a large part of why she was so successful her first year of law school. "If I could tell undergraduate students anything about the program, it would be that the experience was of immeasurable value to me. Until the program, I had no real idea what to expect in law school or how to properly prepare for it,” said Matos. “The program allowed me to understand the way law school classes work and to better prepare myself for the caliber of work that is required to be successful in law school.”
Sponsored by the Penn State University Dickinson School of Law, this intensive one-week program is free of charge to Penn State undergraduate students accepted into the program, which includes housing and meals. This year’s program will be held from May 17 to May 21 in the Lewis Katz Building in University Park.
