Minority scholarship program seeks new applicants
17th June 2013 · 0 Comments
Kean Miller Connection, a law preparatory program for minorities in Louisiana, is accepting applications for its 2013 class.
Kean Miller Connection is a two-day law school preparatory program for college junior and seniors from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in area law schools.
The program, which was launched five years ago by Kean Miller LLP, was created “to educate minority college students on the legal profession and inform them that becoming a lawyer is an attainable opportunity,” according to a press release issued by Kean Miller. The press release went on to say, “the goal is to ‘connect’ students with information helpful in making the decision to attend law school and become a lawyer.”
The program will provide an intense overview of the law school experience including information and guidance on law school admission standards, insight into opportunities in the legal field, speakers from all facets of the legal profession, and general information designed to encourage minorities to enter the profession.
Students interested in applying for the program must be members of a group traditionally underrepresented in law school and the law practice; maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0; must have completed at least 45 college credits and must be Louisiana residents.
This year’s Kean Miller Connection will be held July 11 and 12 in Baton Rouge on the 7th floor of the Kean Miller Conference Center at 400 Convention Street.
Applications must be received no later than June 28, 2013.
For more information about the program, contact Linda Perez Clark at Kean Miller at (225) 387-0999 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
