App. Help

My name is Miranda Paez and I am UC Berkeley’s CLEO Ambassador. The following is a great opportunity for pre-law students.

The Council on Legal Education Opportunity (CLEO) is a national organization that was founded in 1968 to expand opportunities for minority and low-income students to attend law school. Achieving Success in the Application Process (ASAP) is a two-day pre-law summer seminar which focuses on the law school application process. The primary goal of ASAP is to help prospective law school applicants understand the importance of factors in the admission process that are often overlooked or undervalued. ASAP is open to college juniors and seniors, as well as post-graduates. For more information and the program’s application please visit https://cleoinc.org/programs/asap/
