FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 4, 2022

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 Tenth Annual Wisconsin Statewide Pre-Law Diversity Conference and Law Fair!

The legal profession needs lawyers who reflect an increasingly diverse population.

And, diversity in the legal profession increases the likelihood of access to justice.

You are sure to be inspired!
