Law School's Diversity Student Law Day January 14

12.20.2005 | StudentsMinority students thinking about law school can get a look at the University of Dayton School of Law's new Lawyer as Problem Solver curriculum and five-semester option during Diversity Student Law Day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14, in Keller Hall on UD's campus.

It is free and open to the public.

By starting the five-semester option in May, UD law students will have the nation's first opportunity to complete a law degree in two years.

Anthony VanNoy, a 1996 UD law school graduate and partner in Wright and VanNoy LPA, Inc., will discuss the challenges and opportunities of diverse lawyers from 9:30-9:45 a.m.

UD law students will share their law school experiences and how they prepared for the Law School Admission Test, student life, school schedule, exams and curriculum. A group of UD law school alumni practicing in the Dayton area will discuss career options and opportunities for future lawyers.

UD law students will give tours, and prospective students can take part in a mock class and receive tips on applying to law school.

Last fall, 19.3 percent of the entering class were minority students, making it one of the most diverse classes in the law school's history.
