Southern California Law Pathway Day, a new event intended to reach prospective students, especially those from underrepresented communities, launched late in 2020 through a partnership with USC Gould School of Law, University of California, Irvine, School of Law and Loyola Law School. The event, part of the Pathways of Law School initiative developed under the auspices of the State Bar of California in 2014, encourages California community college students to enter the legal profession.
 
More than 150 community college students attended the Dec. 11 event’s three virtual sessions: Academic Success, focusing on acquiring the academic skills required in law school; Life Skills, emphasizing mental fortitude, tenacity and motivation; and a Student Life panel with students who came to law school through community college as part of their undergraduate studies.
