CUNY School of Labor and Urban Studies (SLU) has been awarded the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) Grant from the New York State Education Department for 2020-2025. This CSTEP grant funds SLU’s Project LAW (Leadership, Achievement, and Work), which provides eligible minority and underserved students with additional academic preparation for professional school admissions.

Project LAW

Project LAW is a fully online, synchronous 10-week program designed to prepare eligible individuals for entry to, and successful matriculation in, CUNY School of Law or other programs for aspiring public interest attorneys in New York State. CSTEP Project LAW also aims to instill in program participants, through an emphasis on labor law, the four principles of social justice: equity, access, civic participation, and human rights.

Participants will receive digital instruction with curriculum created specifically for Project LAW on a weekly basis. Fall and Spring program courses are typically offered with Friday evening and Saturday morning options. Summer program courses are typically offered with Thursday evening and Friday morning options. At the end of the program, students will be familiar with the basics of the law profession, law study, and the process of applying to law school. Additional writing support is provided to participants as needed by a program tutor assigned to Project LAW, including review of admissions application statements and essays.

Information sessions are scheduled throughout the year. Pre-register and be added to the list for an invite when the next schedule is released. To view the presentation from Fall 2022 info sessions.
