Diversity Outreach to Students
The LSBA is pleased to offer outreach to middle school, high school, and college students to expose them to positive attorney role models and make them aware of the advantages of a law degree.
Additionally, the LSBA offers unique opportunities for diverse law students of all levels to gain knowledge about the professional and employment side of the noble practice of law. As such, the LSBA will host a variety of professional development programs and job/internship fairs for law students.
