The Summer for Undergraduates program has brought undergraduate students from throughout the country to Florida State University for a month-long immersion in legal study. The largest and oldest of its kind, the primary goal of the program is to provide students with a meaningful understanding of what law school requires for success. The students acquire skills that benefit their undergraduate and future law school studies.
The program has been twice honored by the American Bar Association’s Raymond Pace and Sadie Tanner Mossell Alexander Award for Excellence in Pipeline Diversity. The award is given to organizations or individuals who have shown innovation and leadership in diversifying the educational pipeline to the legal profession.
If you know any undergraduate students who are considering law school, consider encouraging them to apply for the 2017 Donald J. Weidner Summer for Undergraduates Program. Every year since 1992, participants have said the program was life-changing. The law school is accepting applications from rising sophomores, juniors and seniors for the 2017 program until Friday, March 24. Supported by Wayne and Pat Hogan, the program is free for all participants.
