Minority students considering a future in law often make one key mistake; they don’t focus on their unique racial background. Fearing that it could lead to refusal, or unwanted preferential treatment, many applicants leave the race identification space on their initial applications and eventual job applications blank. This mistake could be costly, both figuratively and literally.

Many schools are seeking minority students, and employers are often looking to diversify their employer portfolio, therefore seeking out minority applicants. In addition, many grants and scholarships are open only to minority applicants, meaning if you don’t properly identify your race, it could cost you free money. Walker Advertising is pleased to present tips on how to make your cultural heritage your best asset on your path from law student to legal industry professional.
