Student Leaders, Young Alumni Leaders, and DEI Professionals: A Conversation about Diversity in the Legal Field

In past years, the BU Law Boston Young Alumni Council has hosted student affinity group leaders for a spring semester breakfast at a local restaurant. It has been a good chance for the student leaders to meet our young alumni leaders, build some connections, and it keeps our young alums in-the-know about the current student experience. <br><br> This year, the YAC invites student affinity group leaders to a virtual gathering with DEI professionals from major firms for a small group discussion on diversity in the legal field. Boston YAC member Jonathan Allen ’19 will moderate this conversation that will feature Brenda Carr ’09 from Arnold & Porter, Jennifer Carrion from Morgan Lewis, and Tracy West from WilmerHale. Our hope is that by offering the chance for us to speak as a group with these folks who conduct important work and make hiring decisions at firms that employ many BU lawyers, we will also build stronger connections and bridges between our student and alumni leadership communities. <br><br>
