Obscure Summer Programs

<p>Here are some summer programs that I don't think many people know about:</p>

These are just a few.</p>

<p>But seriously, there are about a million summer programs out there.</p>

<p>just look for them on google. If you encounter any law summer programs, be sure to message them to me</p>

<p>many of these programs are free</p>

<p>the one at duke is for undergraduates. you need recs from duke faculty members...</p>


<p>You can do Law at Clark Scholars. In fact, they have had so many science scholars that they <em>might</em> welcome someone who wants a mentor from their Law School. I think a fair amount of the admission decision involves matching the scholar's area of interest with a mentor who will be on campus and available over the summer, and the Law School just might fit!</p>

<p>Clark is a great program. One of my kids is an alum and he had an amazing experience there. It's quite competitive, especially if you aren't a local kid, because there are only a few spots total (12), and I suspect that there is pressure, formal or informal, to reserve some of these for the locals. Plus, it looks like they try to gender balance, probably for purposes of dormitory space as much as anything else.</p>

<p>Don't be put off by the location -- you'll be too busy and have way too much fun. Plus, not only is it free, it pays a stipend which will cover your air fare and personal out-of-pocket expense.</p>

<p>Yes, clarke sounds like a great program. However, it is only for high school students, and I'm not in high school anymore.</p>

<p>Another rather obscure program that I enjoyed last summer was called Project SMART at the University of New Hampshire.</p>
