Schedule: Monday – Thursday

The primary goal of the Florida International University College of Law Path to the Profession Initiative (“FIU Law Path”) is to both facilitate the increased enrollment of minority and other traditionally underrepresented groups into a law school program as well as to further the development of the skills necessary for a successful law school experience once enrolled. This six-week program offers students the opportunity to learn the fundamental components of the American legal system and the case method (Socratic) approach to studying law, developing the analytical and critical thinking skills expected of law students. Both current law faculty members and specifically, selected law students teach courses. This program is offered at no cost to accepted students.
