Inter-Institutional Consortium Pre-Law Education Program
Funded in part by a pipeline grant from the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), Denver Law’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has launched the Inter-Institutional Consortium Pre-Law Education Program (IIC-PLEP). IIC-PLEP is designed to provide college students from historically underrepresented groups multi-faceted support and access to resources that foster a culturally competent, whole student approach to law school preparation and admission. IIC-PLEP includes access to a free LSAT preparation course in partnership with Khan Academy, virtual preparation workshops, mentorship provided by current law students and lawyers, and wellness programming in partnership with the Black Emotional Mental Health Collective. A primary initiative of the IIC-PLEP is to offer support and preemptive professional identity formation of black, indigenous, people of color (“BIPOC”) LGBTQI+ prelaw students via the Pauli Murray Joseph Beam Initiative. Partner schools include schools in Colorado and historically black colleges and universities. Each represents undergraduate institutions who substantially serve diverse student populations.
