The Fifteenth Annual National Latina/o Law Student Conference

September 29th, 2011 - October 1st, 2011

Location
Tulane University Law School
Loyola University New Orleans College of Law
New Orleans, Louisiana

The 2011 Conference theme, ‘€œCrossroads: Changing Faces in New Beginnings,‘€ recognizes the moment where a new culture full of color and life enters a community in the time of growth and recovery. This theme highlights the many contributions being made by Latinas/os in the rebuilding efforts taking place in New Orleans, which is itself a reflection of an increasingly diverse nation undergoing its own transformations. With this in mind, the topics presented at the Conference will prominently focus on immigration reform, education reform, workers‘€™ rights, and Latinas/os in the judiciary, among others. The Conference will be an opportunity to unite various sectors of the legal profession to understand and tackle these urgent issues.

The weekend will feature:
  • Topical discussions and workshops addressing legal issues affecting the Latino community
  • Panel discussions offering strategies to succeed both during and after law school
  • Networking events and opportunities to enjoy the city‘€™s cultural sights and vibrant nightlife
  • A community service event giving attendees a chance to make a positive contribution to the lives of Latina/o students in New Orleans
