Pipeline Program

Have you heard of the law school method known as IRAC? It stands for Issue, Rule, Analysis, and Conclusion, and it is the primary way law students approach complex legal problems. Here is an example of how it works:

  • ISSUE: Your current LSAT score is not competitive enough to secure your admission to law school. What should you do?
  • RULE: Members of our Pipeline Program who raise their LSAT score to a 153 or higher will receive guaranteed admission to Pace Law School.
  • ANALYSIS: Our two-part program, which includes both an LSAT Focus Approach course as well as a Legal Writing class taught by a Pace Law professor, will give you the tools you need to raise your LSAT score AND prepare you for the first year of law school.
  • CONCLUSION: You should follow the instructions below to find out if you are a candidate for the Pipeline Program.
