Kean Miller Connects Minority College Students to Legal Profession

For many minority students, entering law school and becoming an attorney may seem out of reach.  Four years ago, Kean Miller LLP launched the Kean Miller Connection program to educate minority college students on the legal profession and inform them that becoming a lawyer is an attainable opportunity.  

What Is The Connection?

Kean Miller Connection is a two-day law school preparatory program for college juniors and seniors from groups that are traditionally underrepresented in area law schools.  The goal is to “connect” students with information helpful in making the decision to attend law school and become a lawyer.  Lawyers from Kean Miller LLP, the Greater Baton Rouge Region’s largest law firm, along with other faculty, provide an intense overview of the law school experience.  The program provides information and guidance on law school admission standards, insight into opportunities in the legal field, speakers from all facets of the legal profession, and general information designed to encourage minorities to enter the profession.  

When Is It?

Now in its fifth year, the annual Kean Miller Connection will be held on Thursday, July 21 through Friday, July 22, 2011 in Baton Rouge in the Kean Miller Conference Center (400 Convention Street, 7th Floor).
