To encourage more diverse students to consider law as a potential profession, Cal State San Bernardino will host the inaugural Careers in Law Day on Friday, Nov. 18, to talk about admission and undergraduate degree pathways, admission to law school, life as a law school student, and internships and careers in law.

The Careers in Law Day, which will be from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Santos Manuel Student Union North, is aimed at CSUSB students, community college transfers and high school students as part of the university’s commitment to offering a pre-law curriculum and support programs, including law school advising, and to admissions pathways for diverse students transferring from the community college partners as a member of the Cal LAW Pathways program.

California Leadership-Access-Workforce (Cal LAW) was established in 2015 under the leadership of the State Bar of California’s Council on Access and Fairness (COAF) and with support from the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) to provide a clear educational pipeline for diverse students from high schools, community colleges, and four-year institutions into law schools or law-related careers.

In support of this goal, Cal LAW provides the foundational structure that connects, communicates, collaborates and coordinates the programs essential to the educational pipeline for the students we serve.

The program will feature two breakout sessions, where the following topics will be discussed: “Exploring Careers in Law” (hosted by CSUSB alumni panelists), “Secrets of Law School – What it is Really Like to be a Law Student,” “Internships for Law Careers” and “Learning About the Law School Admission Process.”

CSUSB joined the Cal LAW Pathways program via a memorandum of understanding in February 2022. The university joined other institutions in the Inland Empire that includes Victor Valley College, Riverside City College, Chaffey College, J.W. North High School (Riverside Unified School District) and Valley View High School (Moreno Valley Unified School District).
