NAWJ ANNOUNCES THE 2017-2018 NEW JERSEY CHAPTER
“COLOR OF JUSTICE PROGRAM”
FOR MINORITY STUDENTS INTERESTED IN LEGAL CAREERS
TO BE HELD AT THE RUTGERS UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW
IN NEWARK, NJ ON MARCH 3, 2018.

The National Association of Woman Judges (“NAWJ”) is pleased to announce that this year’s New Jersey Chapter “Color of Justice Program” will be held on March 3, 2018 at the Rutgers University School of Law in Newark, New Jersey.

The “Color of Justice Program” was created by the NAWJ in an effort to advance minority students’ interests and pursuit of a career in the law. The Program will provide participating students with opportunities to interact directly with judges and lawyers and to learn more about the legal profession in its many facets and what is required to pursue the various opportunities in the legal profession.

This year’s New Jersey Chapter “Color of Justice Program” will build on prior Programs and will be attended by students from the region of Essex and surrounding communities. The Program will present panel discussions hosted by judges, attorneys and various other legal professionals who will discuss the legal profession as a career and who will answer questions from the student participants. With this concentrated effort, this year’s Program is intended to give the students an opportunity to network and to meet judges, attorneys and others in the legal profession, who can serve as mentors, if they wish.
