Pathways to Law Conference

About the Pathways to Law Conference

Hosted by AABA's Community Services Committee

Started in 2010, Pathways to Law (formerly known as "Legally Asian") is AABA's annual 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. We recognize the importance of students meeting and learning from real attorneys with Asian Pacific Islander backgrounds when considering a legal career.

This year, the Pathways to Law conference hosted by the Asian American Bar Association will be taking place as an online, live panel series. The purpose of this conference is to encourage college and high school students, especially those from diverse backgrounds, to pursue a law degree. We will discuss career options available with a law degree from the perspective of persons from Asian and Pacific Islander backgrounds. The conference features distinguished panelists who have used their law degrees in a variety of ways.

This event is FREE for everyone.   

Registration is required to attend the conference. The link to view the event will be provided to you via email.
