Eligible Students

The LSAC PLUS Program is open to all students who will have completed at least one year of full-time undergraduate study (or the part-time equavalent) at the start of the Program and who will have at least one semester of undergraduate study remaining after the Program concludes. College graduates possessing a bachelor's degree or the foreign equivalent are not eligible to apply. 

By design, LSAC PLUS Programs strongly prefer applicants who have completed approximately 24 - 60 credits, and who have two or three years of remaining undergraduate study at the start of the Program.The Program focuses on attracting promising students from groups historically underrepresented in the legal profession, socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, as well as students facing other significant barriers to entering the legal profession.
