Minority Pre-Law Event Held

Minority Pre-Law Event Held

More than 50 high school and college students attended the NCBA Minorities in the Profession Committee’s third annual Pre-Law Conference on March 18 at Wake Forest University School of Law.

The conference is designed to reach minority high school and college students who are considering or planning to attend law school.

Attendees received poignant advice from Judge Camille Banks-Prince and heard exciting panels consisting of law school deans, law school admissions representatives, current law students and attorneys.

The panels addressed what admissions officers are looking for in potential students, whether law school is worth the investment, explored alternative careers for lawyers, and provided insight on what students wish they had known prior to pursuing a legal education.

Attendees also participated in a networking lunch and engaged in a mock intellectual property law class.

Many thanks to our sponsors (The Fresh Market and Southern Environmental Law Center) and volunteers that made this event a resounding success!
