MPLS Program

Minnesota Pre-Law Scholars (MPLS) Program

Program Overview and Eligibility

Minnesota Pre-Law Scholars (MPLS) is a program that offers a select number of students a free LSAT prep class each summer at the University of Minnesota Law School. Admission is highly selective and based on a holistic review of the MPLS application material. 

College students considering law school, especially rising seniors and those from groups historically underrepresented in law school, are encouraged to apply. The program is open to undergraduate students and recent graduates from any undergraduate institution.

Students will learn about law school admissions preparation from Minnesota Law School staff. The remaining portion of class will be dedicated to LSAT preparation and practice exams.

The summer 2023 session application is available under the Application drop down menu below. The application deadline is March 12, 2023.
