May 6, 2021 – Upcoming Events, Opportunities & Resources


We’re just about done with the semester folks!  Congrats on nearing the finish line of this unique academic year.  

Many of you will be turning to the LSAT this summer to prepare for the upcoming law school application cycle.  Be sure to check out our online LSAT resources both here (new window) and here (new window).  As far as LSAT timeline, just try to reserve 1-3 months on the front end of the test for prep.  Treat studying for the LSAT like a course: stay on schedule reading/watching lessons and do your homework.  On the back end, remember that law school admissions are conducted on a rolling basis, so try to pick a test date that will allow you to have your LSAT score in hand as early as possible in the application cycle.  

Law School Scholarship Database: (Reiterating this from the last newsletter.)  AccessLex Institute, the largest nonprofit in the country dedicated to the advancement of legal education, has compiled a great resource for law school aspirants.  The organization has collected roughly 800 law school scholarship opportunities in one searchable location (new window).  Take advantage of this database!
