Wisconsin Statewide Pre-Law Diversity Conference and Law Fair

Friday, February 10, 2023

You are cordially invited to join admission officers, faculty, and staff from Marquette University Law School and the University of Wisconsin Law School at the Eleventh Annual Wisconsin Statewide Pre-Law Diversity Conference and Law Fair!

The legal profession needs lawyers who reflect an increasingly diverse population. Age, culture, faith, ethnicity, race, gender, LGBTQ status, and disability all contribute to diversity in law school and the legal profession. And, diversity in the legal profession increases the likelihood of access to justice. Please join admissions officers, faculty, staff, students & alumni from Marquette University Law School and the University of Wisconsin Law School as we explore diversity and the legal profession. You are sure to be inspired!

This IN-PERSON event is FREE to pre-law students and advisors and will be held on Friday, February 10, 2023 from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Central Time at the University of Wisconsin Law School.

*Free bus transportation will be provided from Marquette Law School to Wisconsin Law School.
