Who is eligible to participate?
CLEO recruits individuals who have a strong desire to join the legal profession. Applicants must have obtained a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university prior to the start of the summer institute. Applicants also must be eligible to attend an ABA-approved law school at the completion of the program.
What about my GPA and LSAT score?
Many students with marginal LSAT scores and GPAs would not be admitted to law school without the assistance of CLEO. While CLEO Pre-Law Summer Institute participants must meet pre-determined academic requirements, CLEO recognizes and considers the numerous challenges that applicants have overcome in pursuit of their goal to attend law school.
How do law schools recommend applicants for the CLEO program?
Although there is a rolling admission policy, CLEO will send your name to law schools that appear on your application. Any of those law schools may choose to make recommendations. Therefore it is very important that an applicant correctly identifies the law schools to which he/she will apply.
