Raising the Bar: How to Become a Lawyer

September 8, 2019

Some people feel ashamed when asked about skipping graduate school, or for taking a break from school, but taking time off from school is a lot more common than you think. Studies show that roughly 23 percent of people put their education on hold. Numbers also show that there has been a 35 percent increase in older college students in the past decade, and it is projected to increase by 11 percent. And, if you’re passionate about advocacy and want to take on social responsibilities, maybe it’s still not too late to enroll in law school. 

Raising the Bar host Jason Clark, President of the Metropolitan Black Bar Association is joined by Nicholas K. Austin, President of the Young Lawyers Division at the National Bar Association, and Dionna Maria Lewis, Esq., Founding Partner of the District Legal Group, PLLC to discuss how to become a lawyer.

Aired September 8th , 2019.
