CLEO Comes to Howard Law

CLEO Comes to Howard Law

On August 3 and 4, 2013, Howard University School of Law partnered with the Council on Legal Education (CLEO) to host their Mid-Atlantic Region’s law students conference. The successful two-day conference was attended by 62 pre-law undergraduates interested in attending law school. The pre-law students learned about the rigors of law school and were exposed to the law school admissions process. In addition, 26 first-year law students from various institutions attended the conference. The 26 first-year law students had the benefit of being taught by three of our very fine professors – Professor Mark Strickland, Assistant Professor of Lawyering Skills and Coordinator of the Academic Assistance Program; Professor Morris Davis, Assistant Professor of Lawyering Skills and Professor Alice Thomas, Associate Professor of Law.

The law students participated in two seminars, Achieving Success in the Application Process (ASAP) and Attitude is Essential (AIE). Both the ASAP and AIE seminars provided information and guidance to prepare the first-year student for successful completion of law school. The Mid-Atlantic Region conference was the seventh in a series of annual events that CLEO sponsors throughout the country. Since 1968, CLEO has been striving to expand opportunities for minority and low-income students to attend law school. CLEO is a nonprofit entity of the American Bar Association whose mission is to diversify the legal profession.
