  • Classes meet twice weekly from 6:15 – 9:45 PM. (campus class schedules).
  • Practice tests are scheduled on six Saturdays during the semester from 1:00 to 4:30 PM.

Award Program Requirements

Participation in the program requires a commitment to take the June LSAT and apply for admission to law school. You MUST register for the June LSAT by January 30, 2014. You may not attend class without registration confirmation.

  • You must create an account with the Law School Admission Council at www.lsac.org in order to register for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and the Credential Assembly Service (CAS).
  • You should apply for a fee waiver.  Both the LSAT and the CAS require a fee. The fee for the LSAT is $160. The fee for CAS is $155.  Waiting for a decision on the waiver will NOT be considered a permissible excuse for not being registered for the LSAT by our deadlines.
