The purpose of the Law Day Conference is to familiarize Fresno State students with the various aspects of law school. The conference has also been designed to allow students who would not otherwise be able to attend an out of town law forum the chance to get crucial information about applying to law school and financial aid. Some of the law schools that will be featured include UCLA, UC-Berkley, UC-Davis and UC-Hastings. Since 1978 this event has been held at Fresno State and sponsored by Chicanos in Law.
The Law Day Conference is open to the public and free of charge. For further information regarding this event, please contact Vianey Nunez at chicanosinlawAhotmail.com
