West Virginia University College of Law (Morgantown, WV)

High School Minority Law Day (private)

Date: Friday, February 27, 2015
Time: 9:00 am–2:30 pm
Location: WVU College of Law

As part of DiscoverLaw.org Months, WVU College of Law hosts the 17th Annual High School Minority Law Day. Through the High School Minority Law Day program, the College of Law provides minority students from West Virginia with the opportunity to visit our facility and interact with current law school students and faculty. The purpose of High School Minority Law Day is to nurture the interest of young minority students early so that they approach their undergraduate education with an eye toward law school. Many students do not realize that a legal career is within their reach, and 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.
