ONU Law's Pre-Law Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program
"A committment to Diversity"
The Program: July 13- August 2, 2014
ONU Law's PLUS program is designed to expose students to the fundamental skills necessary to succeed at law school and as a lawyer, offer a comprehensive look at the legal profession and inspire you to pursue a career in law. The program is a three-week residential program funded by the law college. The primary goal of the program is to promote diversity in the legal profession and is directed at freshman and sophomores (rising sophomores and juniors) from groups that are underrepresented in the legal profession or face significant financial and familial obstacles in their pursuit of a career in law.
Students will have an opportunity to meet and interact with law school professors, deans, directors, current students, practicing attorneys, judges and community leaders. The program will also give students the tools to navigate through the law school application process. In addition, it will offer several educational and fun outlets and opportunities to travel.
Students' experience will include:
- Law school classes
- A moot court competition
- Field trips
- Panel discussions
- Receptions and banquets
Cost: The program is offered at no cost to participants.
