The Fannie Lou Hamer Pre-Law Society will present its 2016 Fall Lecture on Friday, October 14, 2016 at 11:30 am. This event will be held at the Fannie Lou Hamer Institute @ COFO located at 1017 John R. Lynch Street, Jackson, MS 39217.
The Fannie Lou Hamer Pre-Law Society (The Society) is the service arm of the pre-law program and furthers student interest in the law through activities and events designed to educate and empower.
The Society introduced the Lecture Series events as a means by which students interested in attending law school could obtain practical knowledge and information directly from licensed, practicing attorneys. The members expressed particular interest in inviting speakers who are JSU and/or HBCU graduates and who may practice law in non-traditional settings. The bi-semester events are hosted pre-lunch time on Fridays and open to the entire JSU and Metro-Jackson legal communities.
The theme for the fall 2016 Lecture Series Event is Honoring Black Cultural Unity: From HBCU to Law School & Beyond. The Event speakers are Attorneys Johnnie McDaniels, Executive Director of the Henley-Young Juvenile Justice Center; Trent Walker, Civil and Criminal Litigator; and Amorya Orr, Forman Watkins & Krutz Law Firm with introductory comments by Hinds County Circuit Clerk Zack Wallace.
