About the Pathways to Law School Conference

Started in 2010, Pathways to Law (formerly known as "Legally Asian") is an annual SF Bay Area pre-law conference designed to encourage high school, college, and post-college students, especially those from diverse backgrounds, to consider law school and the legal profession.

Often students from diverse communities may be the first in their families to attend graduate school or law school, and we recognize the importance of students meeting and learning from real attorneys when considering a legal career.

Our FREE, all-day conference features several panels of attorneys and judges, a law student panel, and an interactive mock law class component. The conference is hosted by the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area and typically co-sponsored by Bay Area law schools, minority bar associations, and other organizations in the community. Students from all backgrounds, their families, and educators are welcome. We hope you'll join us for our next conference!
