“I joined La Raza because I wanted to join a community that feels like family. To also find a space where we uplift & help one another find a pathway to Law School while relating to our struggles.”

“I joined LRPLSA to find a community of belonging amongst other minority members at UC Davis. Originally, I had been a biological sciences major, but I knew being a lawyer could have a much more needed impact for our communities during this country’s current political climate. I came to this organization to gain the resources I needed to be a successful law school applicant, but I will be leaving this organization with the support and love of a family.”

“As a transfer student, I was looking for a sense of comunidad. La Raza Pre-Law has provided that for me since my first quarter here at UC Davis. I have found a space with people who share similar background stories & most importantly, with people who also have an interest in entering the legal field someday. Overall, LRPLSA has provided me the encouragement, resources, & guidance toward a future legal career.”

“I joined LRPLSA to find a pre-law community that I can be a part of and rely on during my time as an undergraduate student in Davis. I also wanted to access various networking & internship opportunities that I would not have been able to access without the organization’s help and established connections.”

“I joined LRPLSA because I wanted to surround myself with like-minded individuals whom I shared similar personal & educational experiences with. Being in La Raza has not only helped me learn about the various career paths that law entails, but it also introduced me to people who I now consider family. I really appreciate how LRPLSA tailors its general meetings to the interests of its members by inviting professionals from numerous careers to answer our questions. I’m happy to be a part of an organization that highlights & accepts diverse perspectives and career paths in law.”

“I joined La Raza because I felt lost in the law school application process, especially as a first-generation latína college student. LRPLSA has ultimately given me the resources, confidence, & motivation I need to succeed in my academic and career goals. I aspire to work in either family or criminal law, as a future Judge in court.”

“I joined LRPLSA because, as a transfer student, I sought community along with information on how to maneuver through law school.”

“Aside from, the mutual goal of wanting to pursue a career in law, I joined LRPLSA because of the organization’s mission to provide resources to underrepresented communities. I also found it to be a very comforting environment in the sense that many members have common experiences & backgrounds that allow us to relate and connect with one another in a meaningful way.”

“I am pre-law because I’ve witnessed & learned how unjust our system is. I strive to one day become a criminal defense attorney who does everything they can to fight for the people.”

“I joined because I wanted to not only learn how to get to law school but to network with other pre-law students. I am ready to excel in being Political Chair”
