California Women Lawyers (CWL) invites high school, college, and law school students to a free comprehensive, 2-hour virtual workshop about becoming a lawyer. CWL will bring together professionals in the field to provide information tailored to students at each stage of their education to navigate paths forward toward a legal career. Beyond fundamentals, this program will guide students toward less talked about resources such as scholarships and mentoring. Students will have the opportunity to meet and ask questions to judges and lawyers who will share their experiences. If you are a student who is interested, or even just curious about becoming a lawyer, please join CWL for this dynamic program. CWL is here to show you that a legal career is not out of reach!
