Pathways to the Legal Profession is a virtual conference designed for prospective law school applicants who do not have a familial relationship to the legal profession or who come from backgrounds that are underrepresented in the field of law. Over the course of the Conference, participants will learn about the myriad pathways to becoming a lawyer from current students, receive tips and tricks for mastering the LSAT from a professional LSAT instructor, and hear about the various opportunities available to law students within Northwestern’s Bluhm Legal Clinic. Participants also will receive a comprehensive overview of the law school application process.


Launched in 2016, the Pathways Conference is an annual event founded by students at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law. The 2024 Pathways Conference is hosted in partnership between the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and the Office of Admissions & Financial Aid.
