At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

The HNBF believes that education improves the quality of life for everyone. That's why they are committed to increasing the academic achievement of Latino youth in our nation. The Future Latino Leaders Law Camp is a unique summer education enrichment program for rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors.

The Future Latino Leaders Law Camp is a nine-day program in Washington, DC. Students live in college dorms and have a college experience while learning about the legal profession and legal procedure from practicing attorneys, law professors, and judges. Leadership skills will be developed in persuasion and negotiation, communication, and public speaking. Students work in teams with a law student camp counselor to prepare for a moot court competition. In addition, behind-the-scenes tours will be provided at select federal institutions such as, U.S. Capitol, Supreme Court, Departments of State and Justice, and much more.

The HNBF's goal is to encourage and inspire high school graduation, attainment of a 4-year college degree, and pursuit of an advanced degree in law. Their vision is a more diverse legal field.

If you know a Latino high school Freshman, Sophomore, Junior or Senior interested in pursuing a career in the legal profession encourage them to apply online. Additional information is also provided on the HNBF's website.
