MTO Fellows Program: Open to undocumented students in/near Los Angeles


If you are interested in going to law school, definitely check out the MTO Fellows Program. It is a one-year initiative aimed at preparing 20-30 students for admission to, and success in, law school. This program seeks applicants from all backgrounds and strives to increase the diversity of the legal profession. Individuals who intend to apply for admission to law school in the fall of 2017 are encouraged to apply, whether they are currently enrolled in or previously graduated from college or university. This opportunity is open to undocumented students.
As an MTO Fellow, you will participate in the following:
  • LSAT Preparation Course: an intensive, customized course paid for by Munger, Tolles & Olson, taught by TestMasters, and hosted at Loyola Law School in downtown Los Angeles, exclusively for MTO Fellows. The course will run during the summer months leading up to the October 2016 LSAT exam.
  • Monthly Saturday Workshops: programming workshops hosted one weekend day per month at Munger, Tolles & Olson’s downtown Los Angeles offices that are designed to address and prepare Fellows for the challenges of both the law school application process and law school itself.
  • The Fellows Network: the program will connect Fellows to a strong network of law students and practicing attorneys, including Fellows alumni, supporters of the program, and partner organizations, through direct introductions during workshops, receptions, and community events.

NOTE: All sponsored activities take place in the greater Los Angeles/Orange County area. The program requires that fellows are located in or near the Los Angeles/Orange County area from June 15, 2016 until February 15, 2017 in order to apply for this program.

To apply, you must submit the following: 1) A completed MTO Fellows Program application form; 2) a resume; 3) official or unofficial undergraduate transcript [photocopy and/or online version]; and 4) a personal statement of not more than 500 words.

The deadline to apply is January 10, 2016.
