On Saturday, February 7, 2015, the Asian American Bar Association of the Greater Bay Area’s Community Services Committee and other bar associations and student groups will be hosting the 6th Annual Legally Asian Conference to encourage college and high school students to pursue a law degree. Legally Asian 2015 will be held at UC Hastings College of the Law, located at 200 McAllister Street, San Francisco, CA 94102. Registration and breakfast will be from 8:00 a.m. to 9 a.m., and the conference will be from 9 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with breaks and a lunch hour. This event is FREE for all attendees. All food and beverages will be provided.

Legally Asian 2015 aims to expose college and high school students, as well as recent young graduates, to law school and the legal profession; to explain career options available with a law degree; and to discuss current issues that impact Asian and Pacific Islander communities. The conference will feature distinguished panelists who have used their law degrees in a variety of ways. The panels will cover legal careers in the public and private sectors – including firm attorneys, public interest attorneys, government attorneys, judges, and in-house counsel – as well as career paths outside the “traditional” practice of law. Also, a panel of Bay Area law students will share their experiences from admission through graduation, and attendees will get a taste of law school through an interactive mock class.

In addition to the panels, attendees will have the opportunity to meet and network with attorneys and law students during the lunch hour. All attendees will be provided with a packet that will include tips on the admissions process and legal education.
