Emory, Other Law Schools in the State Host Event for Underrepresented Students
Georgia’s five law schools will present “Law School 101: A How-To Guide for Underrepresented Students on Applying and Getting into Law School” from 6-9 p.m. Wednesday, March 2 at Emory University School of Law, 1301 Clifton Rd., Atlanta.
Law School 101 is presented in cooperation with the Law School Admission Council’s DiscoverLaw.org months. From Jan. 15 to March 15, events are held at law schools across the country aimed at high school and undergraduate college students from underrepresented racially and ethnically diverse groups who are interested in law careers.
The event will feature panel discussions on topics ranging from “The Importance of Undergraduate Performance” to a “Law School Admissions Panel.” Students also will participate in a mock class led by an Emory Law professor. Alumni and current law students will be on hand to discuss their experiences in law school and in the legal profession.
Admission is free, but registration is required.
In addition to Emory, Georgia’s law schools include: Georgia State University Law School, Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School, Mercer University’s Walter F. George School of Law, and the University of Georgia School of Law.
