Program status

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Prelaw program can no longer be held in person and the internships are no longer available.

The good news is you may choose from hundreds of other online courses, including LAW 3887 International Human Rights in Theory and Practice, June 22-July 10. See the online course roster for all your options.

For more information, see summer study options and the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
