Prospective Students

Welcome to Supero! Whether you are just starting your law school search, are deciding where to attend, or have committed to Harvard Law, this is an exciting time and you should take take pride in all your accomplishments.

If you decide to attend, HLS Supero will be here to support you. We know that students from low-income backgrounds and students with disabilities sometimes face unique challenges while matriculating and beginning law school and we work to make that transition as smooth as possible.

Supero can match you with a current student from a similar background during the summer before school who can serve as a mentor and resource to you throughout this period.

Once you arrive at HLS Supero offers a special orientation for new members aimed to make new students feel more comfortable in what can often feel like a foreign environment. We also match students together in “family groups” which serve as another way to make friends at HLS with students from similar backgrounds.

After you have become more acclimated to law school life, there are lots of other ways to get involved with Supero. We have two committees that members can serve on- the Event Planning Committee and the Change at Harvard Committee. Lots of exciting things are happening with Supero and HLS and we hope you will be a part of it! See you in the fall! Feel free to reach out to Supero@mail.law.harvard.edu with any questions or comments.
