The Mecklenburg County Bar is delighted to host the tenth annual Increasing Diversity in the Legal Profession conference at the Mecklenburg County Bar & Foundation Center. This one-day program is designed to encourage high school and undergraduate students to explore career opportunities in the legal profession. 

DateFeaturing Joe Pierce

The conference targets high school and undergraduate students who will hear about the various stages on the path to becoming a lawyer through a mock trial and several panel discussions: Getting to Law School (separate parent and student sessions include North and South Carolina law school admissions directors); Life as a Diverse Law Student (panel includes currently enrolled law students); and To Be or Not To Be a Lawyer (panel includes experienced local minority attorneys).


During the conference, representatives from North and South Carolina law schools will be available to provide admissions materials and information to the students. Attendees will have the opportunity to mingle with lawyers, judges, and law students one-on-one during the lunch break and following the program to discuss their personal experiences and ask questions. A complimentary breakfast and lunch will be provided to all who register.
