In addition, some programs provide additional training for law school such as those sponsored by the Council on Legal Education Opportunity (CLEO), the Summer for Undergraduate Program at Florida State University, the Charles Hamilton Houston Program, the Chicago-Kent Program, and the Thurgood Marshall Legal Education Opportunity Program.  Students who are selected for these program take law courses from law professors, attend field trips, and receive preparation for the LSAT.
