AlvaradoSmith hosted 25 students from the City of South Gate, as well as some young family members of our own firm for Take Your Child to Work Day in our Los Angeles office. We had attorneys from Facebook, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, Hulu, and a Professor from Loyola Law engage one on one with students and talk about their personal experiences, inspirations and pathways to law. We aimed to help students understand that they already possess some of the skills needed to be an attorney, understand the different pathways to reach a career in law, and the importance of increasing numbers of minority individuals represented in the legal profession. With our panelists’ help, we helped build confidence in these students and had them actively pursuing next steps into mentorships and a career in law.
