Chicago Summer Legal Institute

Chicago Summer Legal Institute (8/6/18 - 8/10/18)
(GEAR UP Partnership)
Location: John Marshall Law School

If you have thought about becoming a lawyer, learn what lawyers do. The Summer Legal Institute Program (SLI) is a one-week legal immersion program for high school students in Baltimore (MD), Chicago (IL), Detroit (MI), Indianapolis (IN), Los Angeles (CA), Twin Cities (MN), New Orleans (LA), Springfield (MA) and Washington (D.C.).

"For many students, particularly students of color and those from low-income backgrounds, the path to law school or a successful legal career is not always clear. JTB works to illuminate that path by lighting the spark of recognition that it is possible to become a lawyer and a leader. That spark is “just the beginning” for our scholars and leaders." ~ Just the Beginning

Learn about the path to law school. Registration is open.
