UHLC Pre-Law Pipeline Programs

The award-winning UHLC Pre-Law Pipeline Programs are designed to enhance the law school applicant pool by providing their students with law school preparatory resources such as LSAT instruction, introductory law school classes, law-related internships, and professional development sessions. Our programs welcome a wide variety of students, including those who are first-generation, from low-income backgrounds, or are members of groups underrepresented in the legal profession with a genuine interest in attending law school and pursuing a legal career.

These programs welcome all students who are first generation, low income, or members of groups underrepresented in the legal profession with a genuine interest in attending law school and pursuing a legal career.  To be considered for any of the programs, students must hold a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.

The University of Houston Law Center Dean, faculty, and administrators all require the best from the students who are accepted to these programs.  The expectation is that each student will fully dedicate their time and energy and demonstrate their commitment to their program by being an excellent student (a student who is punctual, diligent, and always fully prepared for class) and an upstanding member of the law school community and the University of Houston. Students who do not adhere to the University’s code of conduct and the rules of the UHLC Pre-Law Pipeline Programs and the University of Houston Law Center may be dismissed from any program.
