DiscoverLaw.org Plus/Intellectual Entrepreneurship (IE) Partnership
UT’s Intellectual Entrepreneurship Consortium (IE) is pleased to announce a partnership with the DiscoverLaw.org Plus program.
The Longhorn Center for Academic Excellence (LCAE) in the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE) launched the DiscoverLaw.org PLUS program in July of 2015. This program is a collaborative effort between The University of Texas at Austin and Huston-Tillotson University, funded by a three-year grant from the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC).
The purpose of the program is to attract talented students who might not typically consider law school or a career in the legal profession. There is a strong emphasis of students who are under-represented, first generation, and economically disadvantaged. The focus of the program goes well beyond LSAT prep. Students are learning and developing the knowledge and competencies they will need to succeed in law school and in legal professions.
A key component of the DiscoverLaw.org curriculum is delivered by the Intellectual Entrepreneurship Consortium (IE). Starting in the fall 2015, DiscoverLaw.org students will participate in the IE Pre-Grad Mentorship and be partnered with one of IE’s veteran law student mentors.
