2021 Pathways to Law Summit will be held at the University of Southern California, Gould School of Law


The California LAW program is proud to convene the 2020 Pathway to Law Summit (Summit) on the beautiful grounds of Santa Clara University. By continuing the summit, the program hopes to build a tradition of excellence and collaboration in an effort to expand diverse voices and perspectives in California's legal profession.

Spanning two days, the Summit provides robust professional development and networking opportunities, making it an ideal forum to provide updates, share ideas and best practices that support our community's mission. Add to that the incredible setting of this year's Summit host, Santa Clara University School of Law!

The Summit's content and programming was thoughtfully prepared reflecting feedback from prior years' Summits; and assembled by the California LAW Advisory Board in collaboration with stakeholders throughout the state. Much thanks go to those involved, and I hope that you obtain value from this year's programming.

Morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated. Judicial decrees may not change the heart, but they can restrain the heartless.
