Snell & DSC Event.jpg

The Diverse Students Coalition is excited to announce an upcoming event we’ve put together with Snell & Wilmer. Our Law School to Practicing Attorney event will take place on Thursday, Nov. 4 from 5:30 – 7:00 pm. The event will be held off-campus at Snell’s office at One Arizona Center, 400 East Van Buren Street, Suite 1900.    The event will provide you a special opportunity to hear from a panel of diverse attorneys at Snell and to network with them afterwards. During the panel moderated by partner Craig O’Loughlin, panelists will share their personal journeys as attorneys, discuss how they have navigated the law firm environment, and highlight what they are doing to promote diversity, equity, & inclusion in and out of the firm. Panelists include Jada Allender, Allison Davis, Greg Gautam, and Hayden Hilliard. The networking reception will follow the panel event. This event is an especially great opportunity for diverse law students as it will provide a forum for advice from people who once stood in your shoes – before they became diverse attorneys, they were diverse law students.    For more information on our panelists and to RSVP, please click on this link.
