Junior Deferral Program (JDP):
The Harvard Law School Junior Deferral Program (JDP) allows college juniors to apply to HLS during their spring semester for a deferred enrollment of at least two years after graduation. The program is open to all college juniors (not just Harvard students).
We will host "Applying to Law School 101" sessions this fall and spring. These presentations are geared toward juniors and seniors, but all students are welcome. We will discuss what you can do to prepare for law school admissions and for success in law school. We will also provide students with an overview of the law school application process and there is time for Q&A. The date for the fall 101 is Tuesday, October 22 from 5:30-6:30 PM, but the date and time might change. We will post the second date closer to the second semester. Also, please be sure to subscribe to the listserv and check your emails!
Feel free to contact the following Resident and Nonresident Pre-Law Tutors with any questions.
