High school students that attend the Boys and Girls’ Club and North Panola High School will visit and learn about the law school admissions process and what they can do now to prepare.

From January 15 through March 15, LSAC will be joined by law schools across the country to observe DiscoverLaw.org Months, a yearlong initiative targeted to students from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in the legal profession.

LSAC will provide grants to member law schools to demonstrate to high school and early college students why the world does need another lawyer.  The Law School is eligible for a maximum of $2,750 to program events that address early outreach, awareness, and preparation aimed at the target audience. The LSAC Diversity Committee and the Board of Trustees hope that law schools will take advantage of this opportunity to extend outreach efforts, within their local area or state, to minority students in high school, community college, and the first two years of undergraduate school.
