Here’s what women lawyers of color wished they knew about law school

What I Wish I Knew: Learning from Women Lawyers of Color about Their Law School Experiences

Navigating through law school can be a challenging experience for everyone; often, advice about how best to navigate law school is not uniquely tailored to students of color generally, or to women of color’s experiences. In honor of Women’s History Month, join us as women attorneys of color share their personal stories, advice for law students, and resources for making the law school experience smoother for women of color.

This program is focused on women of color’s experiences.
