A Bridge to Law School

How can we make the legal profession look more like America? That question has been a vexing one for all of us who care about equal justice under the law. One solution: Invite more talented people of color to consider legal education and a legal career – and support them to make that dream a reality.

At the University at Buffalo School of Law, Discover Law is doing just that. This award-winning intensive summer program, now in its eighth year, has given dozens of bright young scholars a taste of law school life and opened their imaginations to careers in the law. For these promising future lawyers, the experience is already paying off.

Learn more about the program HERE.

The Discover Law application is due March 30, 2021.

Through the generosity of campus and community partners, the Discover Law program is at no cost to participants. Preference is given to:
Academically promising underrepresented and first generation college students
Students with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and above
Favorable consideration will be given to students who can demonstrate a record of academic achievement in spite of economic challenges, social or cultural disadvantages, linguistic barriers, extraordinary family circumstances, or personal responsibilities.

Discover Law is intended for undergraduate students who have completed freshman, sophomore, or junior year, but who will not begin their senior year prior to the end of the program.

Program dates are May 30, 2021 – June 25, 2021.
