Share this Story

(March 9, 2011)--The UTSA Institute for Law and Public Affairs is accepting applications for the 2011 UTSA Summer Law School Preparation Academy (SLSPA). The deadline for completed applications is March 23 for early review and admission and April 1 for review and admission based on availability. The lauded SLSPA is a premier pre-law program designed to increase the number of Texas students who successfully gain admission to and excel in quality law schools. If you are interested in attending law school, this program is for you.

The SLSPA program offers a variety of rigorous undergraduate courses to prepare students for law school and the LSAT. Students may earn 12 credit hours through this summer program. In partnership with the University of Texas at Austin School of Law, award-winning UTSA faculty members have designed courses that attempt to hone students' analytical, critical-reading and writing skills.

SLSPA students attend seminars presented by law school deans, directors of admissions and professors from every law school in Texas and many from across the country. Experts discuss ways to build a successful law school application, how to write a personal statement, how to apply for scholarships and how to secure financial aid. Distinguished law school professors present seminars for SLSPA students to illuminate the law school experience.

The institute confers the UTSA Certificate in Legal Reasoning upon students who successfully complete 12 credit hours of designated coursework. Students may apply during their sophomore, junior or senior years taking the SLSPA across either one or two summers. Enrollment is by admission following application reviews. Historically, stipends have been awarded to the majority of students admitted to the program. SLSPA students have been accepted into more than 150 law schools across the country.

UTSA makes the grade with a strong core curriculum

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.

For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.

Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
