Minority Prelaw Conference - Fairfax

April 2, 2016

We look forward to bringing you another annual Minority Prelaw Conference in Northern Virginia! This conference sheds light on the process of law school, life of a law student, and what to expect as a practicing lawyer.

We will have many fantastic panels including preparing for law school, the LSAT, surviving law school and the bar exam, and making a career in the law. The panelists will provide you with advice and tools to guide you into a career in the law. Lunch will be provided.

I hope you join us on April 2 at George Mason University Law School in Arlington.
