The Pre-Law is a unique pre-professional course oriented towards introducing the field of law to new leaders of the 21st century. The course covers due process of law, landmark court cases in American legal history, and much more. We hope to orient students towards the LSAT, the difficult-to-navigate requirements of the application to Law School, and the many careers in the world of law.
This program seeks to give students not only the tools of a pre-law student, but also an awareness of history and the current events that contextualize law in society today.
Each day, we begin with a lecture outlining a skill or concept critical to a career in law, whether it be the inner workings of the court system to how to prepare for the LSAT. From there, we build teamwork and collaborative thinking by providing a space for students to engage with one another.
Over the course of the program, we equip students with knowledge and confidence to pursue a career in law. Guided by qualified Harvard undergraduate instructors, our curriculum aims to provide a comprehensive look at legal systems and give students the chance to meaningfully explore the field.
Our goal is to provide a unique experience for students to explore law and litigation. We hope that all students interested in law will walk away with confidence in their ability to navigate the path to law school as well as an excitement for their future in law.
The Young Leaders training program also includes BBI of Chicago’s best selling online course: Public Speaking and Influence.
