Legal Prep has many Enrichment activities and clubs outside the classroom that students enjoy- many started by students themselves! Enrichments help students develop non-academic interests and build well-rounded students. Legal Prep has a variety of enrichment opportunities and always encourage students to explore their interests beyond what is available. Have an idea for a club? There is a place for you to start it! Some highlights of existing enrichment opportunities are below.
