Program Description

The Illinois Tech Summer Pre-Law Institute offers motivated high school students the opportunity to experience what law school classes are like and to learn about the law by practicing the things that lawyers and judges actually do. By simulating the work of the United States Supreme Court, this week-long program will challenge students to think critically, analyze legal issues, and present arguments. With a focus on the First Amendment and student speech, students will read actual cases, construct arguments like practicing lawyers, and decide cases like judges. The Illinois Tech Summer Pre-Law Institute is an eye-opening experience, whether you have always dreamed of becoming an attorney or if you are just curious to learn more about the legal process.

Covid-19 Note

Programs are intended to be in person. In April based on local and national guidelines around COVID-19, we will determine if the program should be run online. Should the program run online, the total cost of the program will be reduced, and your deposit will be applied toward the new program cost. Deposits are fully refundable until May 15th. Please reference the refund policy for more information.
