Pathways to the Legal Profession Conference

Northwestern Pritzker School of Law's Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is excited to invite you to the 8th Annual Pathways to the Legal Profession Conference. This event will take place virtually on Saturday, March 4th from 11:00AM-2:15PM CST. 

Pathways to the Legal Profession is a virtual conference designed for prospective law school applicants from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in the field of law. Over the course of the conference, participants will learn about the myriad pathways to becoming a lawyer, both from students who are currently navigating law school and attorneys who are forging their own paths in the legal profession.

Launched in 2016, the Pathways Conference is an annual event founded by students at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law. The 2023 Pathways Conference is hosted in partnership with the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion and the Office of Admissions & Financial Aid.
