A Pre-Law Program Model for a Small Historically Black College.
Gill, Wanda E.
The design and development of a pre-law program for a small historically black college are described. The model consists of six phases: community outreach/recruitment; an 8-week summer session at the first and second years of college; a second 8-week summer session at the end of the sophomore year; the junior and senior years; and followup. The program components are counseling/advisement, computer-based tutorials, and faculty support. The noncredit summer offerings cover legal writing, consumer advocacy problems, law specialties, taxation laws, business management, and short introductory courses in criminology, negotiation, statutes, ethics, constitutional law, and legal research. Program objectives include: recruit participants from predominantly black high schools and motivate them to explore law careers; offer courses to prepare students for the Law School Admission Test; conduct workshops on completing the law school application process; link students with lawyers who serve as preceptors; offer lectures on current legal topics; provide career counseling; and develop study skills to handle large volumes of materials. Staffing of the program is also discussed. A list of the pre-law major course requirements (30 semester hours) is appended. (SW)
