 NATIONAL LAWCAMP GOES COAST TO COAST -- ADDS
 CALIFORNIA PROGRAM FOR SEASON NO. 3
 BOCA RATON, Fla., March 2 /PRNewswire/ -- National LawCamp, the original summer program for America's future lawyers and leaders, announced its expansion plans to Los Angeles in 1992 at Loyola Marymount University. With applicants to law school reaching over 90,000 and approximately 35,000 students being accepted each year, National LawCamp offers students a competitive edge in pursuing a career in law.
 Under the guidance of law school professors and legal scholars, students are introduced to law school courses, language and teaching methods. Professors live on campus with students, providing them round-the-clock insight into legal questions and the law school experience. National LawCamp reduces the intimidation of law school and provides students with an advantage both in deciding an a law career and beginning law school itself all within an enthusiastic and supportive environment.
 Professor Paul M. Lisnek, National LawCamp's director of Faculty & Academics and assistant dean, Loyola University, Chicago School of Law, said, "While many summer educational programs reach out to students, National LawCamp truly captured my heart as a law school educator. The program is an educational experience that inspires, educates and motivates students as no other I have seen. Students gain insight that will boost their strategy for entering law school and for their success in that first otherwise foreign and difficult semester." Lisnek has been with the program since its inception in 1989.
 Representatives from West Services, Inc., a subsidiary of West Publishing Company, teach students the fundamentals of traditional book and WESTLAW(R), computer-assisted legal research. West Services has extended financial assistance for certain academically deserving students.
 Seminars presented by Stanley H. Kaplan Educational Centers, one of the nation's leading SAT and SAT preparatory companies, cover Law School Admission Test (LSAT) preparation.
 National LawCamp programs are offered in two locations -- Loyola Marymount University (California) and Georgetown University (Washington, D.C.). Different law school courses are taught at each location. National LawCamp programs are also offered in two separate divisions: 1) a high school division for students entering grades 9-12 and 2) a college and over division. Textbooks have been created by law professors especially for National LawCamp.
 Program courses include: Constitutional Law, Civil Procedure, Jurisprudence, Appellate Advocacy, Torts, Legal Ethics, Criminal Law, Trial Advocacy & Evidence. Each program concludes with mock trials and/or appellate arguments.
 The National LawCamp faculty includes Paul M. Lisnek, assistant dean, Loyola Law School-Chicago; Steven I. Friedland, Harvard Law School graduate and professor at Nova University Law School; Byron McCoy, law professor at University of Houston Law School and NITA director; Michael F. Flynn, former chief attorney in Washington state's Consumer Protection Division and current professor at Nova University Law School; John Moye, national authority on contracts, partnerships and corporations and former associate dean at University of Denver College of Law. Guest speakers also appear at the program.
