MWBLSA Convention

ATTENTION UIS PRE-LAW STUDENTS! The Midwest Region of the National Black Law Students Association (MWBLSA) is hosting its 50th Anniversary Convention, in St. Louis, Missouri from January 31 to February 4, 2018.

This Convention is open to any minority pre-law students or students simply curious about a career in the law. It is expected that there will be more than 400 MWBLSA members and pre-law students in attendance throughout the week to participate in the Thurgood Marshall Mock Trial and Fredrick Douglass Moot Court Competitions, workshops, networking receptions, community service events, and an exposition fair of law schools and organizations with job and internship opportunities.  They will also be distributing pre-law scholarships to future law students to promote diversity in the legal profession.

As a special incentive, MWBLSA is discounting pre-law students’ registration if they volunteer to participate in their Mock Trial and Moot Court Competitions as bailiffs!
