Summer Pre-Law Opportunity Program at UCDavis

The KING HALL OUTREACH PROGRAM at UCDavis, aimed at first-generation college students OR students who come from an economically disadvantaged background AND who are currently sophomores or have two years before graduating, is currently accepting applications. It's a 3-4 week intensive law school preparation program that includes a $1400 stipend.

Deadline to apply is April 15, 2012.

Priority consideration is given to applications received by April 7.  There are no application or tuition fees to participate in this 2-year program.  For complete eligibility criteria, program description, instructions and application click here.

Program Description

  • Your KHOP commitment involves two academic years and two consecutive summers: one four-week session each summer before your junior and senior year where you are "in residence" at UC Davis. During the two summer sessions, you will:
  • Take classes in writing, logic, and LSAT prep. These classes focus on building and strengthening your academic skills;
  • Attend presentations about law school preparation and the legal profession by law professors, attorney and admission professionals;
  • Participate in Moot Court and Mock Trial; and
  • Meet with tutors and admission professionals who can help shape your academic and career decisions.

It doesn’t stop there! During the academic year, you will have the opportunity to receive pre-law advising, take practice LSATs under test conditions and receive access to additional pre-law resources from the Outreach library.


Students must be first-generation college students OR come from an economically disadvantaged background and...
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher as calculated on a 4.33 scale and following LSAC guidelines;
  • Are a current college sophomore in good standing or will be transferring to a 4-year college for Fall 2012 within three hours of Sacramento (Junior students are highly encouraged to consider applying to Pre-Law Boot Camp in the Fall for participation in Spring 2013);
  • Intend to go to law school, but no earlier than for Fall 2014 enrollment.
  • Higher consideration given to students previously identified by enrollment in Trio (Upward Bound, PUENTE, EOP, etc.) or other college outreach programs such as STEP.

NOTE: There is no fee to apply!  If selected to participate in KHOP, you are not allowed to take outside classes or work.  We understand that many students depend on financial aid and/or a job in the summer. Students who successfully complete the summer program may receive up to a $1400 stipend.
