BYU Latin Law Student Association hosts pre-law event Nov. 18

Brigham Young University’s Latin American Law Student Association is hosting a Latino Pre-law event Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. in room 303 of the J Reuben Clark Law School. The association invites all interested students to come learn more about the law school and the legal profession.

“All students are invited to participate, regardless of ethnicity,” said Joseph Caudell, a student representative from LALSA, who explained that the active members of the club are comprised of more than just Latino law students.

LALSA was established to encourage and incorporate Latino diversity within the law school and the legal community. The association members accomplish their aims by mentoring incoming Latino law students, providing information to Latino pre-law students, raising awareness of legal issues that affect Latinos and create a community where law students can collaborate on those legal and political issues affecting the Latino community, said Caudell.

Hispanic Business Inc. named the BYU law school as the 11th most Hispanic friendly law school in the nation. The rankings were published in "The Second 10: Nos. 11-20 Best Law Schools for Hispanic Students, 2008," in Hispanic Business, Aug. 29, 2008. HispanTelligence, the research arm of Hispanic Business Inc., annually assesses the nation's top universities for Hispanics in the fields of medicine, engineering, business and law.

“The ranking by Hispanic Business recognizes the law school’s efforts to create an enriched environment where students can learn from each others’ life experiences and are better prepared to serve and make valuable contributions in an increasingly dynamic world,” said assistant dean Carl Hernandez.
