Dillard University LEAD Program Student in 2020We believe it is critical that these students receive pre-law advising throughout their education at Dillard to help forge a path for success. Ninety-three percent (93%) of Dillard's students who applied to law schools in 2021 were admitted, a 160% increase from 2020. This is a reflection of our commitment as a program and as a University.


After a student reaches out to our program, De’Jonique Carter, LMSW, Esq., our pre-law advisor, makes it a priority to meet with them at least once a semester to make sure they’re on the right track. As students progress through the program and their undergraduate education, we offer application assistance for internships and summer programs, and, eventually, law school. Students are welcomed to schedule an appointment using this LINK


Careful, consistent advising built on personalized attention sets our pre-law program apart. Our pre-law advisor gets to know each and every student she advises, allowing her to go beyond the typical scope of advising to address the unique obstacles students of color face. From financial aid advising to on-campus counseling referrals, we strive to support our pre-law students every step of the way.
