About the Lawtina
Inspired by the success of the Lawtina in Training 1L Bootcamp in Summer 2021, second-year J.D. student Brianna Chapa, president of the newly formed Lawtina Network registered student organization, will be working with St. Mary’s Law faculty, staff and community partners to create the first Lawtina Network Summit event on Saturday, Aug. 6, with info sessions, relationship-building activities and networking opportunities for Latina lawyers across the country.
As the Lawtina Network continues to grow, Chapa hopes to make it into a nonprofit organization with chapters in law schools across the nation.
Second-year J.D. student Brianna Chapa leads the effort to organize the Lawtina Network Summit.
Three tracks will be available for participants: Pre-Law (for incoming law students), Lawtina-in-Training (for law students) and Lawtina (for members of the bench and bar). Each track will address common issues, questions and concerns that a “Lawtina” might face at that stage of her legal career.
Focused on incoming first-year J.D. students, we will discuss discovering one’s law school identity and state of mind, surviving the first semester, mental well-being, time management, managing relationships and academic success.
