RALEIGH —The LSAC PLUS Program at the North Carolina Central University (NCCU) School of Law enrolls up to 24 students for its program with the ideal candidate being a student with a solid academic record who is intellectually curious, ready to engage in coursework and would like a leg up in preparing for a legal education.

Members of the NCCU Law Plus Program, which runs from June 5-30, visited Campbell Law School on Thursday.

“We were a part of their visit to several law schools in the Triangle and Greensboro,” said Assistant Dean of Admissions Miguel Hernandez. “There were 16 students in today’s group, all of whom were undergraduates building pathways to law school.”

The NCCU Law Plus Program targets students from colleges and universities in the Southeast region of the United States with a focus on Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in North Carolina. For more than 80 years, NCCU Law has been educating minority students who join the legal profession. NCCU Law is proud to host this program to provide an opportunity for minority students to not only consider law school but to be prepared to pursue it successfully, according to the school’s website.

The LSAC PLUS Program is open to students who have completed their freshman or sophomore years at four-year colleges and universities, technical colleges and community colleges. Admissions preference is given to students who are currently enrolled at an HBCU or Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) and have completed between 24 and 60 credits by the start of the LSAC PLUS Online Program. The program focuses on attracting promising students from groups historically underrepresented in the legal profession, first-generation college students and those from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, as well as students facing other significant barriers to entering the legal profession.
