On Saturday, March 23, 2019, the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area’s Community Services Committee, UC Hastings APALSA and other bar associations and student groups will be hosting their 10th annual pre-law diversity conference, “Pathways to Law”, to encourage students to pursue a law degree. Our conference will expose high school students, college students, and recent young graduates, to law school and the legal profession. 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. Panelists will discuss their legal careers in the public and private sectors – including a judge, private practice and public interest attorneys, and in-house counsel – as well as career paths outside the “traditional” practice of law. A panel of Bay Area law students will also share their experiences from admission through graduation, and attendees will get a taste of law school through an interactive mock class with Professor Eugene Kim of the University of San Francisco School of Law. Breakfast and lunch are provided and students will also have the opportunity to meet local attorneys and law students during the lunch hour.
