UC Davis School of Law: King Hall Outreach Program (KHOP)
Please consult the program website to confirm program details, including applicable deadlines.
Program Purpose and Description
KHOP is an intensive law school preparation program that requires participants to make a two-year commitment during their junior and senior years. The KHOP commitment involves two academic years and two consecutive summers. During the four-week summer sessions (July – August), participants are "in residence" at UC Davis where they take classes in writing, logic, and LSAT prep, sit in on presentations, participate in Moot Court or Mock Trial, and meet with tutors and admission professionals who help guide their academic and career decisions. During the academic year, they participate in a mentorship program with a current law student, attend workshops on the application process, take practice LSAT exams under test conditions, and go on field trips. The program provides the opportunity to meet law professors, attorneys, and admissions professionals from various law schools.
Program provides room and board, field trip expenses, and course textbook costs.
