February 21, 2002 - East Lansing, MI. More than 100 minority high school students from the Jackson (Michigan) School District will visit Michigan State University-Detroit College of Law on Monday, February 25, during the college's annual African American Law Day.

Highlights of the day include a building tour at 8:30 a.m. followed by talks from law students and practicing attorneys at 10 a.m. (See enclosed schedule.) All events will take place inside the Law College Building at Shaw Lane and Bogue on the Michigan State University campus.

African American Law Day is sponsored each year by the Wolverine Student Bar Association-Black Law Students Association (WSBA-BLSA) to encourage legal careers among minority students. Last year's event drew 150 minority students from the Lansing School District.

The WSBA-BLSA, one of 18 organizations managed and staffed by MSU-DCL law students, is providing the event with support from Slick Shirts, of Lansing, and Papa John's Pizza, of East Lansing.
