ONE AND TWO WEEK SUMMER PROGRAMS

 
COMMENTS ABOUT SHORT-TERM PROGRAMS. We can recommend a  worth-while short-term summer program to a serious prelaw student if this student can easily commute to the program. For those not within a reasonable commuting distance, the time, inconvenience, and expense of traveling to and from the program combined with the expense of a hotel room along with being forced to eat restaurant food for five, six, or seven days (and, almost as bad, being forced to pay for it) may outweigh the benefits to be gained from the program. If you attend the Law Preview Program, we recommend the six-day program.
 

2013 LAW PREVIEW PROGRAM 
DATES AND LOCATIONS. This program is offered at fourteen locations around the nation. 
DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM. The participants have three choices: 
          One-day program (Legal research & writing workshop )
          Five-day program (Overview of core first-year law school courses
                    and lectures on academic success) Six-day program (This combines the five-day program and the one-day program).
PRICING AND REGISTRATION.  Apply by May 1 for fee slightly less that $200 per day. Some law schools have negotiated an additional $100 discount for their entering students who would like to attend a 5- or 6-day Law Preview class

WEBSITE INFORMATIVE.
UNIQUE TO THIS PROGRAM. A limited number of selective internship placements at law firms or in the legal department of a corporation, government agency, or nonprofit organization. These unpaid internships are optional, limited in number, not guaranteed, and will be assigned by the Prelaw Program on a first-come, first-served basis. 
TUITION AND FEE. Housing and meals are not included. You're responsible for finding your own housing; a variety of housing options are available.
WHAT DO YOU GET FOR YOUR MONEY? For the first three weeks, a four-credit course in the morning and, if desired, a second three weeks in an unpaid internship. One strong advantage to the program is the location (New York City) but each day you are responsible for your housing and food expenses.
