Senior Devon Rivera-Reed and junior Amir McClinton attended the 18th Annual Minority Law and Research Institute (MLARI) at the Law Center of Southern University and A&M College in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
The Institute is designed to encourage under-represented students to consider careers in law, research and the legal profession. A total of 50 rising ninth, 10th, 11th and 12th-graders, as well as first year college students, from Maryland to Louisiana participated in the summer Institute. The Institute is an effective method for identifying and recruiting future lawyers interested in the career options of the legal profession. The Institute founder and coordinator is Dr. Joseph Hayden, a native of Goochland County.
