Applications accepted now for UTSA Summer Law School Preparation Academy
(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.
