Considering law school after graduation, but intimidated by where to start? Find guidance through free prelaw seminars hosted by CLEO, a nonprofit project of the American Bar Association, and the College Scholars program. A prelaw seminar will be held on Saturday, March 23, at the Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law for area students.
Freshmen through graduates are invited to the event, which will have specific seminars for various groups. Freshmen will attend the Road to Law seminar, which will provide an overview of the key components of the law school application process. Sophomores will attend the Super Saturday seminar, which will help students develop reading comprehension and writing skills that are imperative for the application. Juniors, seniors, and graduates will attend the Jumpstart the LSAT seminar, which will help students schedule their preparation for the LSAT (juniors will be granted priority enrollment for that seminar).
Students can register for their specific groups online and should do so as soon as possible; space fills quickly. The web address for the freshman seminar is http://www.cleoadmin.com/pre_law_programs/sssappAllRLS.cfm.

Since 1968, CLEO has helped more than 7,000 low-income and minority students become successful members of the legal profession. The College Scholars Program seeks to continue this standard of excellence through a collaborative effort between CLEO and colleges and universities throughout the United States.
