Prior to the start of the school year, LEOP students participate in a week-long orientation which prepares students for academic success.
The Legal Education Opportunity Program (LEOP) was created by the UC Hastings faculty in 1969 to make legal education accessible to students from adverse backgrounds. While at UC Hastings, students in LEOP are provided with the opportunity to participate in a cooperative academic support program dedicated to their success in law school and in the legal profession. LEOP academic resources, programs, and services are designed to help students build upon their existing skills, knowledge, and learning styles. LEOP’s support program begins at orientation and spans a student’s entire education at UC Hastings.
