Join us. . . . .On Friday, March 22, 2013, the Chabot College Law & Democracy Program, the State Bar Council on Access & Fairness (COAF), the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), and Street Law, Inc. will be hosting a conference on Increasing Diversity in the Legal Profession. This will be the first public gathering of COAF’s community college initiative which is designed to mentor and support motivated minority and diverse community college students who are interested in the legal profession.
Law schools, the legal profession, and the entire community benefit from the experiences and perspectives that students of color, women and other diverse students bring to the study and practice of law. If you are a student interested in a career in the legal profession, please attend to learn what steps to take. If you are interested in teaching a law-based course or have students interested in a legal career, this program is for you. If you are an attorney or judge who wants to support these pipeline efforts, please attend so you can participate in the networking session with students and faculty.
