Summer Law Institute

The Summer Law Institute (SLI) is a seven-day, residential program for high school students interested in the law and the legal profession. Students will spend the week at the Brandeis School of Law participating in workshops taught by attorneys, judges and law professors. They will learn the fundamentals of trial procedure, discuss important legal and social issues and study how the law affects their lives. In the evenings, students will work with the Bellarmine University Mock Trial Team to prepare for a mock trial on the last day of the program. Local judges will preside over the mock trial in which students act as attorneys and witnesses. Field trips during the week include visits to the state and federal courthouses and to Bellarmine University. During the program, students will reside in U of L campus housing and the SLI will provide all meals. Note: Because we are only able to accept a limited number of students each year, if we receive more applications than we can accommodate, we will give preference to students entering their junior or senior year.

 Applications are available at the Louisville Bar Association website.
