Consistent with the principles governing the Black Law Students Association, the Kemet Chapter has instituted a one-day program which reinforces the ideal of recruiting law students and maintaining awareness of the needs within the Black community. “A Day In The Life Of A Law Student” was launched in the Winter of 2004 at the suggestion of BLSA members who were seeking to bridge the gap between the University at large and the Law School here at Northeastern. Additionally, noting the declining rate of enrollment of Black students in law schools nationwide, the Kemet Chapter instituted this program to provide encouragement, advice and networking opportunities to aspiring Black attorneys.
Held in late October or early November, the program provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to learn about law school by attending classes with current second and third year law students and later discussing with Kemet Chapter members their aspirations, fears and general questions regarding law school. This newly-established tradition is indicative of the Kemet Chapter’s commitment to and advancement of the Black community and the aspiring future attorneys.
