Pre-Law Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) Program

Sunday, June 4, to Friday, June 23, 2017

Application Received by Deadline:
Wednesday, March 1, 2017


The IIT Chicago-Kent Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars program ("PLUS") offers a unique and unforgettable experience for college students who are interested in the legal profession. This rigorous three-week program is designed to prepare students for law school or a career in the legal profession by helping them to develop essential core competencies needed to succeed in these areas. The program targets undergraduate college students from groups that are underrepresented in the legal profession.

The PLUS program is a free, three-week summer program that will:

  • provide participants with a deeper understanding of legal education via the program's rigorous doctrinal and experiential skills-based curriculum;
  • help participants develop essential core competencies needed to succeed in the law school application and admissions process, as well as insight into navigating the process; and
  • expose students to a wide range of career paths within the legal profession.

Students must attend all classes and participate in all program activities in order to be accepted and to receive a stipend. This is a full-time commitment. Therefore, students must be available during the day and some evenings, and have no outside commitments that would prevent them from giving the program their full attention. Students must agree to provide PLUS administrators with education and career updates after completion of the program.

The PLUS program is for college students who will not have received their bachelor degree by the start of the program; however, preference is given to those who will have completed their first or second year. Students who have already completed a bachelor degree are not eligible for the program. For additional information, please download the application packet or contact Theda Mickey, administrative director of the PLUS Program, at if you have any questions.
