Meet-Ups Organized

Founded in 2014

Evangeline M. Mitchell, Esq., Ed.M. founded the National HBCU Pre-Law Summit & Law Expo in 2014. As an HBCU graduate herself (Prairie View A&M University) and after finding that the National Black Pre-Law Conference and Law Fair, which she created in 2005 was not attracting enough students from historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and more time was needed to address their unique issues and concerns, she decided to create a special event specifically targeting HBCU students and graduates interested in going to law school and becoming lawyers. With the encouragement and support of GeColby J. Youngblood, M.Ed. (Alcorn State University and North Carolina Central University) and the North Carolina Central University School of Law community, the inaugural event was launched at North Carolina Central University School of Law in Durham, North Carolina on Friday, September 19, 2014. Subsequent events have been held at Georgia State University College of Law, North Carolina A&T State University, Bennett College, The International Civil Rights Center and Museum, Morehouse College, Atlanta's John Marshall Law School, and Emory University School of Law.
