The Pre-Legal program is a five-week, residential, skill-building program which requires a total commitment of time and energy. Courses are offered in legal writing, legal analysis, written communications, and two substantive areas of the law such as contracts, property, agency, or constitutional law.
Classes are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Additional class sessions, time and stress management skills programs, and career orientation workshops are scheduled on evenings and weekends.
All substantive law classes are taught by law school faculty, practicing attorneys, and judges. Class attendance is mandatory. Like law school, Pre-Legal is a full-time commitment.
