Thank you for your interest in Trials! We welcome applications from college students and graduates across the nation.
Our application asks you to frame your academic credentials in the context of your personal circumstances by inviting you to share information about your college transcript, your extracurricular and work activities, your parents or guardians and family, and the experiences that have led you to consider a legal education.
The first step is to register as an applicant by supplying some basic information––contact information, your most recent school attended, and your undergraduate GPA to date. We encourage you to submit Part I as soon as possible.
Upon receipt and approval of Part I, you will receive directions for accessing Part II, which is the full application.
In Part II, we will ask you to submit a 2-page personal statement. The personal statement is your opportunity to share information that has not appeared elsewhere on the application––information that you think we should know when making an admissions decision. You may want to use this space to tell us why you’re interested in attending law school, to explain an inconsistency in your academic record, or to describe your professional goals. Whatever you decide to write about, we hope your statement will help us achieve a fuller understanding of who you are and why you want to attend Trials.
After reviewing applications, we will contact final round applicants to request official transcripts and letters of recommendations. The finalist round also includes multiple interviews. The purpose of these interviews is to allow us to address any questions about your application we may have and to make sure you understand and are committed to the Trials program.
The application for the Summer 2024 TRIALS program at Harvard Law School will be available October 27, 2023.
