The Pre-Law Fellowship aims to support up to ten individuals seriously interested in the study of law. The Fellowship includes an enrichment series of ten seminars on topics related to law school, the legal field, and law school application; access to a designated attorney mentor and law student mentor; a fully paid LSAT course; and reimbursement of any related expenses, such as law school applications, LSAT test fees, and travel to attend the seminars. The first seminar of the enrichment series will be held in March 2024; they will then be held on a monthly basis through December 2024.
The Pre-Law Fellowship may be a good fit for you if you are passionate about entering the legal profession and practicing law in Utah, if you plan to apply to law school in the near future, if you don’t have attorneys in your family or network, and if you are eager to engage in a cohort program where you can feel connected, guided, and supported. Becoming a Pre-Law Fellow has less to do with a perfect or aspirational GPA, and much more to do with passion for the legal field and a commitment to moving forward with law school applications in the near future.
For anyone interested in law school but who does not have immediate plans to apply, this is likely not the right opportunity for you. Please consider other UCLI opportunities, such as the Pre-Law Symposium (scheduled for October 20, 2023 at the University of Utah S. J. Quinney College of Law), the UCLI internship, or pre-law resources. Check back in with us the year you do plan to apply for law school.
