Earlier this summer, our law school welcomed in a group of talented young people from the HNBA (Hispanic National Bar Association) in conjunction with ‘LEAP’ (Legal Education Action Program). The program consisted of a week long intensive where students (9-11th grade) tackled varying components of the legal profession including what it means to “think like a lawyer”. The students were introduced to mayors, corporate attorneys, councilmen and Judges each of whom, freely shared their story and how they viewed the current state of the law profession. The students were so impressive courteous, smart and well-spoken. They gave me great hope that our future is in good hands.
We’ll be hosting another event in the Spring Semester where we host a different group of students in an attempt to help them ‘Discover Law’ in conjunction with LSAC.
