The Break into Law Conference is a free and virtual conference with a mission to help BIPOC, first-generation, and other marginalized students and professionals break into the legal field.
The conference will take place July 8 – 9, 2023, with a Law School Fair taking place on Saturday for prospective law school students and a Law Firm Career Fair taking place on Sunday for current law school students and recent graduates. Both days will also feature a Resource Fair for vendors.
In addition to the fairs, they will have 13 panels discussing topics ranging from Equity in Law School Admissions featuring Law School Admission Council Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer Angela Winfield, Financing Your Legal Education featuring representatives from Penn Carey Law, AccessLex, and UT Austin School of Law, Understanding Federal Clerkships, Corporate Litigation, IP Law, and Sports Law, to practical sessions such as Interviewing and the Job Search led by Dean Lauren Jackson, Assistant Dean of Career Services at Howard University School of Law and Dean Akua Akyea, Associate Dean for Career Services at Cornell Law School.
All students (prospective and current) who attend the conference will also be eligible to enter to win a scholarship to help defray some of their law school costs. The registration link can be found at bit.ly/break-into-law.
