The FIU Law Path to the Profession Initiative is a unique pre-law program offered at no cost to accepted students. This program offers students exposure to the different fundamental components of the American legal system as well as assistance with the law school application process, including the opportunity to take an LSAT diagnostic exam.  Launched in summer 2019 after receiving a grant from AccessLex; FIU Law Path’s first cohort is currently enrolled in an online LSAT Prep course.

This summer, a second cohort will participate in virtual, online courses. This program is overwhelmingly supported by the FIU Law faculty, with more than 20 professors and lecturers participating—all on a voluntary basis. The diversity of the faculty at FIU Law offers a competitive advantage that allows students to gain unique perspectives on typical law school courses.  They will also learn the case method approach to studying law and have the chance to develop the key analytical and critical thinking skills expected of law students. This program is an exciting opportunity for the faculty and current law student volunteers to bring their first-hand knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm to undergraduate students who are interested in law school.

FIU Law Path also offers students the opportunity to develop many of the soft skills needed to succeed in law school, including courses on leadership, wellness, and professional responsibility. The FIU Law Path is a six-week program that runs from June 8 – July 24, 2020, FIU College of Law, Modesto Maidique Campus.
