On Saturday, February 4, 2017, the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area's Community Services Committee and other bar associations and student groups will be hosting its 8th Annual Pathways to Law: Pre-Law Diversity Conference (formerly "Legally Asian") to encourage high school and college students to pursue a law degree.
Pathways to Law 2017 will be held at:
UC Hastings College of the Law
200 McAllister Street, San Francisco, CA 94102
Registration and Breakfast | 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Conference | 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
With breaks and a lunch hour
This event is FREE for all attendees. All food and beverages will be provided.
Pathways to Law aims to expose college and high school students to law school and the legal profession; to explain career options available with a law degree; and to discuss current issues that impact Asian and Pacific Islander communities. The conference will feature distinguished panelists who have used their law degrees in a variety of ways. The panels will cover legal careers in the public and private sectors – including in public interest, government, in-house, private firms, and the judiciary – as well as career paths outside the “traditional” practice of law. A panel of Bay Area law students will share their experiences from admission through graduation, and attendees will get a taste of law school through an interactive mock class.
In addition to the panels, attendees will have the opportunity to network with attorneys and law students during the lunch hour. All attendees will be provided with a packet that will include tips on the admissions process and legal education.
All interested students, parents, teachers, and others are welcome. Walk-ins are also welcome. For more information on panels and schedule, please visit our website at legallyasianlaw.com.
