Journey to JD

The University of Kansas School of Law offers a weeklong summer program for diverse students entering their freshman or sophomore year of college. This program invites applications from any student interested in a legal profession. Our intent is to support a diverse student body at KU Law by identifying promising students from a variety of backgrounds not commonly represented in the practice of law. Our goal is that these students, after experiencing the program and being paired with a mentor to help navigate the path through higher education, will eventually pursue a legal career.
