Thinking about law school? The Florida State University College of Law is currently accepting applications for its 2014 Summer for Undergraduates Program, which provides students an inside look at law school and the legal profession. The program will take place May 19-June 12. All undergraduate students, except those graduating in spring 2014, are eligible to apply.
Approximately 60 students will be chosen from the applicant pool to participate in the intensive four-week program. Daily lecture classes taught by a Florida State Law professor will familiarize students with the functions of the American legal system and the process by which conflicts are resolved. Legal Writing classes will help students develop their verbal and written communication skills. In addition to the rigorous academic focus of the program, participants also will be exposed to LSAT overview workshops and a simulated exam, law school admissions sessions, visits to local state and federal courts and law offices, and guest lectures by prominent attorneys in a variety of practice areas.
The College of Law provides free room and board, course materials, and a travel stipend to all participants. There is no program tuition, but participants are responsible for their travel expenses to and from Tallahassee.
To apply, students must complete the online application and submit a resume, one letter of recommendation, a personal statement, and a current transcript. Applications must be submitted by Friday, March 28, 2014. For more information or to view our program video, visit www.law.fsu.edu/slp. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
