Advantage Testing Foundation


A partnership of NYU School of Law, Harvard Law School, and the Advantage Testing Foundation.


Trials seeks to promote diversity at America’s leading law schools and in the legal profession. Our explicit aim is to support students of modest means whose racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds are underrepresented in America’s top-rated JD programs. We welcome applications from all motivated students of any background whose personal circumstances, self-identifications, and unique perspectives might place them outside the mainstream of typical law school applicants.

We will give particular consideration to those candidates who attend colleges that traditionally send no more than one graduate per year to the partnering law schools. Each summer, the majority of students enrolled in Trials will hail from such underrepresented institutions.

We take into account all aspects of a candidate’s application, and we encourage all eligible students who are interested in attending law school to apply to Trials.

Trials seeks motivated students of modest means who come from backgrounds that are currently underrepresented at the nation’s top law schools. All those who may fit these criteria are encouraged to apply.
