In attendance, we will have prominent practitioners, judges, and law students.

West Virginia University College of Law (Morgantown, WV)

High School Minority Law Day (private)

Date: Friday, February 24, 2017
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 19th 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 (as well as some schools in Pennsylvania) 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 toward 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, as well as a presentation from a minority alumnus and practicing attorney.

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

Multicultural Law Academy (private)

Date: Friday, March 3, 2017
Time: 8:30 am–2:00 pm
Location: Northern Kentucky University

To best serve the needs of society, the legal profession must reflect the diversity of our communities. 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. Join us on campus for this special event to learn about pursuing a career in law and the steps necessary to achieve your goals.
