Georgetown Law makes connections with Lancers

Saint Francis is one of three Bay Area high schools partnering with Georgetown Law School to bring more students of diverse backgrounds into the legal profession.

Through Georgetown's Early Outreach Initiative, Saint Francis students recently had the opportunity to meet with Georgetown Law students, as well as a panel of lawyers and the dean of Georgetown Law. Later, students will have the opportunity to take an online course through the law school and will be paired with a mentor who will work with them during their undergraduate studies to prepare for applying to law school. 

“Providing our Lancers with an opportunity to learn more about the law profession and discover their potential within the field is an invaluable experience to have as a high school student,” said Ms. Rodriguez, department chair of guidance and college counseling.
