The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law will host a diversity outreach program for high school students and college and university undergraduate students on Friday, March 6.  The event will include a question-and-answer session with current law students, a panel discussion led by distinguished local attorneys and a luncheon with law school alumni. 

The program will be held in the Fogelman Executive Center, Room 136, with registration beginning at 8 a.m.  There is no admission fee, but reservations are required; they may be made by calling 901-678-2528.

The day-long program will include breakout sessions for the high school students to discuss undergraduate admissions and the upcoming summer internship program sponsored by the Memphis Bar Association.

The college undergraduates will meet with the law school’s dean of admissions to hear about the law school admissions process and how to become a qualified law school applicant.

All prospective students will learn the requirements for law school admission, as well as tips on how to make themselves more attractive law school candidates. Law school admissions professionals, student representatives, and practicing lawyers will be on hand to answer questions.

The culminating event will be a presentation by the Black Law Student Association’s mock trial team. The event is sponsored by a grant from the Law School Admissions Council and DiscoverLawMonth.org to help ensure that underrepresented students gain early exposure to the law admissions process.
