West Virginia University College of Law (Morgantown, WV)

High School Minority Law Day (private)

Date: Friday, February 26, 2016
Time: 9:00 am–2:30 pm
Location: WVU College of Law

As part of DiscoverLaw.org Months, WVU College of Law hosts High School Minority Law Day. High School Minority Law Day is in its eighteenth year and has been an annual success. Through the High School Minority Law Day program, the College of Law is able to provide minority students from high schools across the state of West Virginia the opportunity to visit our facility and interact with current law school students and faculty.

The purpose of the program is to nurture the interest of young minority students early so that they may approach their undergraduate education with an eye towards law school. Many of these students do not realize that a legal career is within their reach. This program allows us to work with participants to make this career path a realistic option for them. The event includes a welcome from our dean; sessions on admission, choosing an undergraduate major, and first/last impressions of a trial; and a presentation from a minority faculty member.

Northern Kentucky University—Salmon P. Chase College of Law (Highland Heights, KY)

Multicultural Law Academy (private)

Date: Friday, March 4, 2016
Time: 8:30 am–2:00 pm
Location: NKU Griffin Hall

The Multicultural Law Academy is designed to inform students from racial and ethnic groups that are underrepresented in the legal profession about careers in law. Students will learn about pursuing a career in law and the necessary steps to achieve their goals. Students will have the opportunity to tour campus, participate in a mock trial, interact with undergraduate and law students, create a budget for college, and hear from a keynote speaker during lunch.
