Jump Start Summer Program

The Jump Start Summer Program is designed to assist students in their transition to law school and to help them reach their full potential to achieve success. This year, Jump Start is scheduled for August 6 – 11, 2018. While all first year students are eligible to apply, we are particularly interested in enrolling those students who would benefit from additional support as they transition to law school.
