Pathway to Law Program

Pathway to Law School is for underrepresented college students interested in learning more about law schools and careers in the legal field.  The initiative is designed to enhance opportunities and advancement in the legal profession for diverse populations.  Ideally, students will spend two years at Rio Hondo College, transfer to an accredited undergraduate institution to complete their bachelor’s degree, and then be considered for a priority admissions review to one of the participating law schools.
