The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) sponsors DiscoverLaw with the mission to encourage racially and ethnically diverse students to discover career opportunities in law and choose undergraduate paths to help them succeed. The School of Law has participated in this program for over five years and has hosted a number of different groups. Our continued involvement in the DiscoverLaw program strongly compliments our institutional goals of recruiting a diverse student body.
Audience(s): Student Life
- The 2013 DiscoverLaw event was planned around a talk given by Author Toni Morrison and the screening of the Civil Rights and Restorative Justice Project’s screening of The Trouble I’ve Seen. Participants attended a law student-led workshop on Restorative Justice prior to the main event.
- Some of our past DiscoverLaw events involved Global Potential, an organization co-founded by School of Law alumna, Sarah Gogel ’13. Global Potential is a nonprofit social enterprise that trains youth from low-income urban and rural communities around the world in media advocacy, social entrepreneurship, global awareness, community development, leadership, and service learning.
- For our most recent event, DiscoverLaw partnered with MassBay Community College, and we hope to continue partnering with MassBay on future programming.
