Welcome to CLEO!

Welcome to the CLEO Diversity in Legal Education Blog! On this site we will talk about the reality of a prelaw education, the programs that CLEO sponsors, and the challenges and triumphs you encounter as you diversify the legal field. CLEO staff and colleagues will share practical insights and discuss how to become a competitive law school applicant.

  PreLaw NEW Ye@r's rZlution! The CLEO blog

What's your New Year's prelaw resolution . . . So the world did not come to an end on December 21st.  New Year's Eve has come and gone and it is time for resolutions. We all know someone who resolved to Happy New Year lose those annoying pounds, only to quit a week or two later when they lost steam. Prelaw students start the new year with the same good intentions, but give-up when they try to do it alone and don't see immediate results.  Don't be a New Year casualty. . . be a CLEO success story!

Each year hundreds of students across the nation use College Scholars Programs to prepare for law school.  They know you can't wish your way to better LSAT scores.  You can reach your goal of becoming a law student if you make a clear plan and use the resources around you.  Any good plan starts with a timeline to mark your progress, a clear set of tasks designed to fit your level of readiness, and a team of friends and mentors to keep you motivated.  CLEO's prelaw experts and resources are ready to help you reach your goals.  All you need to do is choose the right program for you . . . and then get involved!
