Frequently Asked Questions

Pre-Law Summer Institute for American Indians and Alaska Natives
I applied to law school but don’t know if I’ve been admitted. Can I still be admitted to PLSI?

Yes. You must have submitted a complete application to an ABA-accredited law school, but you need not have been admitted before attending PLSI.

I have not taken the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) yet. Can I attend PLSI before I take the LSAT to see if I really want to go to law school?

No. The PLSI admission process is much the same as the law school process, so you must have taken the LSAT, completed your undergraduate degree by May, and applied to law school prior to attending PLSI.

How much does it cost to attend PLSI?

There are no charges to attend PLSI, but you will need funds to travel to and from Albuquerque and funds for your living expenses. We require all students to seek financial assistance from their tribes. We will send a break-out of costs to you, along with your PLSI admission letter, that you can send to your tribe. If your tribe cannot fund you, financial assistance is available through PLSI.
