Law School Preparatory Program for College Graduates of Spanish-American Descent. Progress Report to the Ford Foundation.
Denver Univ., CO.
The Ford Foundation funded an experimental program at the University of Denver College of Law in the summer of 1967 to prepare Spanish-American college graduates to enter law school, the ultimate purpose being to increase the number of Spanish-American lawyers in the Rocky Mountain area. Twenty student participants were selected on the basis of academic achievement, extracurricular activities and interests, and personal situation of the applicant. Basic law courses in Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, and Contracts were offered without credit. Teaching assistants conducted individual counseling sessions and assisted with class instruction and group tutorial sessions. Eleven students were selected for scholarships and admission to law school on the basis of academic achievement during the summer program. The program will continue over a 3-year period. (JEH)
