The W&M Legal Scholars Program is a holistic four-year program that seeks to enhance successful pathways in the legal profession for students who are low-income, from low-income areas, are first-generation undergraduate students, and/or who have overcome unusual adversity. All students interested in the program are invited to attend its events and presentations. The Program provides opportunities across all four years on W&M’s campus, including direct academic support; LSAT training classes; intentional, focused pre-law advising; sustained mentoring by alumni attorneys and law students; and peer-to-peer support and advising.

Law schools across the country are working to enhance pathways to the legal profession. The W&M Legal Scholars Program, however, is based on the premise that to increase opportunities, we must focus on these efforts at the undergraduate level; law school is too late. You can help us meet this goal by providing support for the Legal Scholars Program's cost-intensive initiatives such as providing the Scholars with an LSAT prep course, covering their LSAT exam fees, and law schools' application fees.
