Color of Justice

Today we hosted a group of high school students participating in the National Association of Women Judges program, The Color of Justice: Encouraging Students to Consider Legal and Judicial Careers.
The program is described on their website as:
"To encourage girls and minority high school students to consider pursuing careers in the law and judiciary, NAWJ developed this highly effective program. Experienced judges and lawyers discuss law school and the requirements for admission, share their experiences including the reasons why they chose their careers, and answer questions in small groups. Students, judges and lawyers laud the project, and it has been reproduced simply and successfully around the country."

My wife, an attorney licensed in four states, welcomed the studens on behalf of the university. She is working with a group o faculty to create a unique pre-law program for Dillard students.
