APPtitude Pre-Law Program


The APPtitude prelaw certificate program is designed to support prelaw students by providing information and resources related to academic, personal, and professional development. Divided into three tracks (Academic, Personal, and Professional), the APPtitude program will cover topics on critical thinking and reading, the American legal system, time management, wellness and mindfulness, professionalism, networking, and more. By providing helpful information, tools, and resources in these three core tracks, the program aims to support student success during undergraduate studies and assist undergraduate students in developing skills in areas essential for future success in law school.

Students who successfully complete the program will receive a certificate of completion.

No, students do not earn academic credit for completing the APPtitude program.

Students will build community, resources, and skills in three areas: academic, personal, and professional development. Specifically, students will work on their critical thinking and reading skills, with an eye toward understanding their importance to the successful study of law. Students will build their time-management and wellness skills, further preparing them for their academic and professional journeys.

Students will be required to meet for an hour session each week throughout the duration of the Program.  In addition, participants will be required to complete brief assignments related to each session.  Some limited special sessions or events scheduled outside the regular weekly session may also occur.  Students can expect the commitment to be between 1-2 hours per week, with an approximate total time commitment of 12-16 hours for the semester.
