CLEO/Thurgood Marshall College Scholars Program is for freshmen, sophomores or juniors interested in attending law school. The Road to Law School, Sophomore Super Saturdays, Juniors Jumpstart the LSAT and Achieving Success in the Application Process and pre-law seminars are designed especial- ly for undergraduate students so that they can learn how to suc- cessfully navigate the law school admission process and under- write their success in law school. All are free.


To ensure the success of students who participate in the


CLEO Program as well as accomplish its mission to diversify the legal profession, CLEO provides placement assistance, academ- ic support and counseling, financial assistance, bar prep orienta- tion, online tutoring programs and weekend seminars and work- shops. The seminars and workshops generally address the con- tinuing need for legal services to under-served and low-income communities, and stress the importance of the students' commit- ment to serve those communities upon graduation. In addition, as a means of extending the legal education pipeline, CLEO also provides training and workshops to college students who are interested in attending law school and pursuing a career in the legal profession. Introductory orientations such as “The Road to Law School,” offer a one-day seminar designed to expose participants to the law school admission process and steps for making them compet- itive law school applicants.


The CLEO website offers comprehensive resources and a portal to the legal world. The CLEO diverCITY Network is an online portal designed to be “the virtual destination for minority law students.” CLEO is actively encouraging minority/under- represented law students seeking membership in CLEO to reg- ister as a new CLEO Affiliate.
