Diversity Law Day

What?

Diversity Law Day is for high school junior and seniors and college freshman and sophomores who wish to learn more about the legal field. This is an opportunity to get an inside look at what it takes to be a lawyer. Throughout the day you will have the opportunity to network with professors, current law school students, and practicing attorneys. You will hear from practicing attorneys and current law students and participate in a mock class taught by an Indiana Law professor.
