Don’t despair! We want to take the anxiety out of planning your future career in law.

Become a part of Barnes & Thornburg Prelaw Scholars Program (PSP). Why? Because our law firm wants to help individuals hurdle obstacles in the way of pursuing a law degree.

Here’s how it works:

Students who are interested in law school apply to be a Prelaw Scholar. We cover the cost of taking the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and the LSAT prep course.  After you have successfully taken the LSAT, we help you offset the cost of your applications to law schools by providing funds for a credential assembly service to help you gather, organize, and present application materials. The program also provides attorney mentors to help guide you through law school. Below are requirements and next steps:
