Pre-Law Institute

Welcome to the Pre-Law Institute

Building on John Jay College’s commitment to educate traditionally underrepresented groups and increase workforce diversity, the Pre-Law Institute and Center for Post–Graduate Opportunities (PLI/CPO) facilitates admission to law schools and graduate schools and offers access to fellowships and scholarships through strategic programs and resources.  We envision a pipeline of students and alumni who identify their interests and reasons for pursuing a post-graduate experience, make informed career choices and continually develop skills which allow them to function as lifelong learners and critically-thinking citizens.
 
PLI/CPO programs and resources include: 
 
Individual advisement
Judicial internships
Individual guidance in developing personal essays and applications
An introduction to the rigor and discipline required to succeed in a law school or graduate school setting
Professional networking  opportunities 
Preparation for the LSAT or GRE  

 

John Jay students and alumni who would like to make an appointment with a pre-law, graduate school or fellowships advisor may do so by stopping by the Pre-Law Institute in 8.66 NB or by emailing pli@jjay.cuny.edu.
