Who We Serve

Since its inception in 1975, MAPLA has served as an effective vehicle for communication among professionals involved in pre-law advising and in the law school admissions process. MAPLA members advise students in Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

To further advance MAPLA’s core mission of outreach and support for pre-law advising professionals, in 2022 MAPLA established the Racheter DEI Membership Scholarship.  The Racheter DEI Membership Scholarship program provides support to pre-law advisors from diverse or underrepresented groups and to advisors providing pre-law advising services at institutions that serve students from diverse and underrepresented populations within the legal profession.   To learn more about the Racheter DEI Membership Scholarship program, click here.
