Latino Pre-Law Students of UC Berkeley
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Feb 23, 2017
Earlier this week, I returned to Barrows Hall on the UC Berkeley campus where I had taken classes as an undergraduate many years ago. The Latino Pre-Law Students of UC Berkeley invited me to talk about UC Davis School of Law, the law school application process, and life as a lawyer. It was a delightful group of enthusiastic students, including an alum of our King Hall Outreach program Luz Murillo (who coincidentally hails from Esparto in Yolo County). I greatly enjoyed telling the group about the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., at King Hall, the origins of the King statue, and the unique sense of community that students, faculty, staff, and alums have created at King Hall. The students had excellent questions about law school, the application process, and the practice of law. I left the evening impressed with these great students. The group plans to visit King Hall in April.
To top off a wonderful night, I stopped by my favorite hot dog place in the world, Top Dog, and enjoyed a tasty meal.
