Rising Attorneys Inclusive Summer Experience (R.A.I.S.E) students

In the summer, UIC Law hosts an exciting two-day immersive experience where students interested in studying the field of law explore how to prepare for, apply to, and finance law school; what to expect during law school; and how you can use their J.D. to improve themselves, their community, and society.

The goal of the Rising Attorneys Inclusive Summer Experience (R.A.I.S.E) is to provide access, information and an opportunity to students interested in impacting their communities by using a law degree to fulfill social justice. Rising attorneys get to:

  • Hear from representatives from the Offices of Admissions and Financial Aid
  • Participate in a mock trial featuring members from our award winning Trial Advocacy and Dispute Resolution competition teams
  • Attend mock classes taught by UIC Law faculty
  • Learn insights and tips for a successful law school experience from past and current law students
