What did Cornell University students Samantha Camy and Lydia Anglin do after they noticed the lack of organizations geared towards supporting students of color who want to pursue a career in law on their college campus? They started their own organization called the Black Ivy Pre-Law Society, which was founded in the Spring of 2016 on four core values: ethics, equality, excellence, and economy. Through its constant communication with Cornell Law School and its Black Law Student Association, the Black Ivy Pre-Law Society seeks to provide its members with resources for academic, professional and mentorship development.
According to its website, the professional honor society is “confident that they can provide (their) members with the tools necessary for future success in a legal profession, ultimately diversifying academic institutions and the legal industry.” Meet the 2016-2017 society members below:
