LatinoJustice Law Day 2020

611 people attended
Law Day is one of LatinoJustice's most well-known pre-law programs in our CAP Leadership Institute—now sponsored by Nixon Peabody, LLP. Law Day 2020 is LatinoJustice PRLDEF’s 38th annual Law Day. We started this event in 1982 when we recognized the need for a recruitment fair that targeted Latinx, Black, and Brown people of color. This has become one of the most important recruitment fairs in the Northeast, and this year, our first virtual event has allowed LatinoJustice to reach more law schools and more students across the nation. Welcome, and congratulations on taking this important step on your path to a legal career!
