A new two-week program for college undergraduates considering law school will debut at Vanderbilt Law School this summer. The program is aimed at college students who believe they might be interested in a career in law, but want more information before applying to law school.
J.D. PreVU, to be held at the law school June 10-21, will include an orientation course, The Life of the Law, which is currently taught at Vanderbilt and other law schools, as well as sessions led by Vanderbilt Law School faculty, alumni, students and staff; challenging curricular and co-curricular experiences; candid information on the law school admissions process; and a look at the reality of the legal profession and the legal job market.
“Law school is a major commitment, both in terms of time and money,” said Chris Guthrie, dean of Vanderbilt Law School. “We developed J.D. PreVU to give college students a meaningful opportunity to ‘try it before they buy it.’ And for those students who ultimately choose to enroll in law school, we believe this program will give them a leg up by introducing them to the law school experience.”
Cost for the two-week program is $4,500 with lodging on campus, or $4,000 without lodging. That price includes books, computing access and printing, all meals, use of the Vanderbilt recreation center and all off-campus programs.
