The Twin Cities Summer Legal Institute (June 26, 2017 – June 30, 2017) is a fun, educational, and interactive program hosted by the University of Minnesota Law School. The SLI provides high school students with exposure to legal careers, the opportunity to build legal and professional skills, and connections with judges, lawyers, and other leaders in the legal profession. The program is FREE to all students, with public transportation passes available to students who express a need. Housing is not available; students travelling from a distance further than the metro area are required to arrange for their own housing.

Students who participate in the Summer Legal Institute will:

  • Study the legal system and how it works alongside attorney and judge volunteers;
  • Build leadership and teamwork skills;
  • Analyze selected cases, debate legal issues and participate in both a mock trial and an oral argument;
  • Gain an understanding of the real-life aspects of practicing law at a law firm or corporation;
  • Develop contacts with legal professionals and organizations that provide scholarships, internships and mentors; and
  • Receive guidance about the college and law school admissions processes, as well as financial aid resources.*
