|An award-winning pipeline initiative of the Ronald H. Brown Center for Civil Rights, the 2020 summer program serves college students from historically underrepresented groups who want to pursue a career in the law. The 2020 summer program takes place at St. John’s Law in Queens (8000 Utopia Parkway, Queens, NY 11439) and begins in June 2020. |
We offer two distinct programs:
• Summer Prep Program Foundations – an all-male program for undergraduates
• Summer LSAT Boot Camp – a co-ed program for rising seniors
Our Foundations students learn the fundamentals of legal analysis, writing, and advocacy in courses taught by St. John’s faculty and through internships with lawyers and judges in the New York City area. They also participate in workshops on professionalism and career/networking events.
The LSAT Boot Camp students take a comprehensive, customized LSAT prep course, and participate in essay workshops and admissions counseling. The boot camp culminates in October 2020 with an event for LSAT Boot Camp students, where participants meet one on one with admissions officers from law schools across the country.
