Civil Rights Then and Now: The Evolution of Legal Strategies for Achieving Civil Rights for All
Kim Keenan, General Counsel for the NAACP will serve as our Black History Month Speaker and present: Civil Rights Then and Now: The Evolution of Legal Strategies for Achieving Civil Rights For All at 5:00 p.m. A reception with light hors d’oeuvres will follow in both locations immediately following Ms. Keenan’s talk.
Keenan’s visit is part of Discover Law, a series of events sponsored by the Law School Admissions Council to give high school and early college students of underrepresented groups more information about the legal profession. High school and college students who are interested in learning more about the legal profession are welcome to join a panel of Penn State Law students at 3 p.m. Feb. 12 in the Lewis Katz Building. Law students will be prepared to provide information on their experiences in applying to and succeeding in law school.
Both events are sponsored by Penn State's Dickinson School of Law, the Penn State School of International Affairs, the African Studies Department and Penn State's Office of Educational Equity, and hosted by the Black Law Students’ Association.
