The Third Annual Joint National Black and Hispanic Pre-Law Conference and Law Fair 2017 is a unique major pre-law event that provides important information, resources and connections for both aspiring Black and Latinx lawyers.
What makes this event different is that it provides special sessions specifically discussing the importance of coalition building and collaboration between these major racial and cultural groups for the common goal of increasing diversity in law schools and in the legal profession. We also want to encourage camaraderie and friendship between future lawyers from both groups and have organized activities with this goal.
There is also a large joint law fair attracting more than 110 law schools and law-related organizations across the country interested in recruiting and increasing their numbers of both Black and Latinx law students. Our signature event the One-on-One Pre-Law Advice Clinic/Practical Assistance Session will be conducted, where pre-law students can connect with a current law school administrator, law student, or lawyer with any questions about law school admission, the law school experience, and career planning, or bring in their admissions materials for review. Further, at the end of the event, pre-law students can take part in the Aspiring Lawyers Pinning Ceremony.
A special tour of New York City area law schools is also organized on the Thursday prior to the event. Optional social events are planned in the evenings as well as a tour of New York City on Sunday after the close of the event.
