Florida A&M University’s Post-Admit Program Prepares Students for Law School

The Florida A&M University College of Law has announced the establishment of the Summer Comprehensive Academic Legal Enhancement (SCALE) post-admit program to prepare incoming students for the rigors of the law school curriculum. The program aims to enhance students’ problem-solving, legal reasoning, critical reading and thinking skills.

The voluntary two-week program took place earlier this summer. Sixteen students received housing, meals, course materials, and faculty instruction at no cost.

LeRoy Pernell, professor of law and interim dean of the law school, stated that “deficiencies in these skill areas are directly related to why students who may have otherwise performed well academically prior to law school, may not perform well on the LSAT exam and in-turn not succeed in law school. SCALE is designed to bridge the gap in developing these core skills, as well as provide a strong foundation by which SCALE participants can excel in their first year of law school.”
