LSAC's DiscoverLaw.org Prelaw Undergraduate Scholars (PLUS) program is focused on, but not restricted, to college students from racial and ethnic minority groups underrepresented in the legal profession. The program is designed for students in the first two years of college, and preference will be given to students who have joined DiscoverLaw.org.

The four-week program provides an intense focus on the skills required to succeed in law school, the law school admission process, and legal career opportunities. Interested students should contact the law school directly for application information, including deadlines and selection criteria.
