Pledging Law School: Diverse Law Students & Graduates Share Their Experiences and Demystify Law School
What is the purpose of this book project?
To provide insight into the law school experience from a wide variety of diverse perspectives. It is intended to address the many issues and concerns facing persons contemplating attending law school based on the actual experiences of persons who are currently going through or who have gone through law school. There is a lot of mystery and are numerous myths and misconceptions surrounding what law school is like and there are a multitude of additional things that particularly minorities must face in the competitive, cutthroat and stressful law school environment. It is the publishers’ hope that others will gain insight on the experience beforehand and therefore be better prepared for the adversities and challenges they are undoubtedly going to face. Many people have often compared the law school experience to intellectual ‘boot camp’ or ‘pledging’ an exclusive organization that believes that membership such be “earned” such as a sorority or fraternity. This book will allow readers to better understand why.
Who is collecting submissions and editing this book?
Evangeline M. Mitchell, J.D., Ed.M., author and publisher, and a graduate of Prairie View A&M University, the University of Iowa College of Law and the Harvard University Graduate School of Education. She first began working on this book project during her second year in law school in 1995. However, due to everyday pressures and the strenuous workload of law school, she was unable to devote the amount of time and attention to a project of this magnitude undoubtedly requires and deserves. . . . Evangeline is currently writing and publishing an entire line of books geared to African Americans and other minorities to help demystify the law school admissions process and experience. She is also expanding the scope of the publishing company to also include college, graduate and professional school resources. Her first release was The African American Pre-Law School Advice Guide: Things You Really Need to Know Before Applying to Law School. Her next release (fall 2003) will be a book entitled Profiles of Successful African American Law School Applicants.
Who is publishing this book?
Hope’s Promise Publishing will publish this book upon completion. Hope’s Promise Publishing is a Black-owned, independent publishing company specializing in self-help, inspirational educational reference books and products for aspiring law students in order to demystify the legal admissions and educational experiences. HPP is expanding its scope in the future to include books for future college, graduate and professional school students as well. HPP's featured books and products are geared especially to African Americans and other minorities from educationally, socially and economically disadvantaged backgrounds. The company was created out of a sense of necessity and social responsibility. Its mission is to ‘take a vested interest in helping you in the journey to achieve your goals’ and ‘to help you make it to the next educational level.’ It is the publisher's belief that there really is no success unless we give back based on the knowledge and opportunities we’ve gained for those who come behind us. By the doing this, we can ensure that we have successors who will continue to do the same.
Why is such a book so important?
Many persons who are thinking about attending law school don’t know a large number of lawyers or law students, if any. They may not have the time, resources or ability to talk to a large spectrum of other persons about their varied experiences, perspectives and viewpoints and to seek out their advice. However, this type of information from various people and diverse voices is invaluable to the prospective law student.
Once this book is completed, prospective law students will have a resource in which they can learn from others’ experiences, think about them and if and when they decide to attend law school, they can feel somewhat mentally prepared for their law school experience from the knowledge they have gained.
This book will prove to be tremendously useful and insightful not only to prospective law students, but also to law school administrators, professors, staff and any other persons interested in learning more about the law school experiences and views of a number of current and former minority law students.
How is this book different from other law school experience books?
Because it speaks of the law school experience directly from the actual voices of a large number of law students and graduates particularly minority law students from educationally, economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds.
What part can I play in contributing to making this book project great?
Get the word out, enter your submissions and encourage your friends and associates, who are current law students or law graduates, to contribute to this book project.
When is the deadline?
December 30, 2003.
