Jumpstart is a preparation program designed to help students develop the academic and interpersonal skills needed to navigate law school and become successful legal professionals.
The three-day orientation program brings together incoming students (from groups traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession) from the six Chicago-area law schools and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign before the official orientations at their respective law schools. Through a series of interactive sessions, students confront the challenges that all first-year law students face and learn about the crucial components of a successful and satisfying law school experience. They also learn about important resources and support available to them on an ongoing basis.
