Kean Miller Connects Minority College Students With Opportunities in the Legal Profession

For many minority students, entering law school and becoming an attorney may seem out of reach. Seven 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 of the program is to “connect” students with information helpful in making the decision to attend law school and become a lawyer. Practicing attorneys from Kean Miller LLP, one of the largest law firms in Louisiana, along with other law-related 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 law school, and ultimately, the legal profession.

When is it?
Now in its eighth year, the annual Kean Miller Connection will be held on Thursday, July 16, 2015 and Friday, July 17, 2015 in Baton Rouge in the Kean Miller Conference Center (II City Plaza, 400 Convention Street, Suite 700, Baton Rouge, LA 70802).
