Law Student Programs
The GLLF is here to help Latino law students get the most out of their law school experiences. We believe Latino law students have unlimited potential and we hope to make them realize it by providing professional development, mentoring and networking opportunities, as well as by creating community partnerships that will provide them opportunities to obtain substantive legal work experience.
Leadership and Mentoring
The GLLF is committed to help develop the future leaders of Georgia. To do so, it believes in the power of mentorship and it hopes one day every Latino law student in Georgia will have a professional mentor. Through our leadership and mentoring program, law students and others interested in entering the practice of law will be partnered with experienced legal professionals that can provide guidance, insight and support. Through our leadership progarm, law students will be provided with opportunities to learn about themselves and the place they occupy within Georgia and the legal community. They will learn how to build and keep relationships, as well as how to leverage their connections to amplify their impact in the community.
Applications are now closed.
Law Day has been designed to welcome incoming Latino law students entering Georgia's law schools and to provide them with an opportunity to get their law school careers off to the best start. In addition, incoming and current law students are invited to participate in a career development workshop that will allow them to create an action plan as they pursue the careers they seek.
In the evening, the Latino legal community will join the law students for a meet and greet reception.
In the Summer of 2017, the GLLF hopes to install once again five student fellows at non-profits around Georgia that provide legal services to the Latino community. This program will provide the law students the opportunity to gain substantive legal experience, while serving the community.
