Las Vegas Latino Bar Association is proud to present its inaugural fundraiser: ¡Andale! 5K - A Race to Equalize Law School Admissions! The race will take place on September 21, 2019, at the Kellogg Zaher park in Las Vegas, Nevada at 8:00 AM. According to the Hispanic National Bar Association, while making up 18% of the country’s population, Hispanics comprise only about 5% of the nation’s lawyers. A legal profession that is more reflective of our nation’s ethnic diversity would benefit everyone by increasing public trust in our legal system, assisting law firms in developing more innovative approaches to legal problems, and over time, increase judicial diversity.
A significant barrier for many Hispanics who wish to pursue a legal education is their inability to afford an LSAT preparation course, which would lead to higher LSAT scores and ultimate a higher chance of getting accepted into law school. With this in mind, the ¡Andale! 5Kwill raise funds for scholarships to pay for Hispanic college students to offset the costs of LSAT preparation courses.
