AUSTIN, Texas—As a part of a continuing commitment to diversity at The University of Texas School of Law, the Student Recruitment and Orientation Committee (SROC) will mark National Minority Law Student Recruitment Month by hosting the UT Law Academy on Friday, Feb. 27. Approximately 80 high school juniors and seniors from Lanier and Reagan High Schools will participate in activities including a mock class, panel discussions, a mock trial, and tours of the facilities.

"The UT Law Academy is one of several initiatives the Law School has undertaken to promote legal education in general and the accessibility of The University of Texas School of Law, in particular, to all of our youth throughout Texas. This is our fourth consecutive year of hosting the Academy," said Monica Ingram, Assistant Dean for Admissions at the Law School.

National Minority Recruitment Month is funded by the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) to help raise awareness of minority recruitment issues facing law schools nationally. The effort is one of many aimed at increasing minority student representation in ABA accredited law schools.
