April 3, 2013
Paul Quinn College will serve as host of the 2013 National Black Pre-Law Conference Symposium on April 12, 12-6 p.m. in the John Hurst Adams Administration building. The symposium will provide attendees with information on admission to law school and legal careers. The keynote speaker for the event will be the founder and executive director of the National Black Pre-Law Conference, Evangeline M. Mitchell, Esq., Ed.M.
PQC is hosting the event thanks to the efforts of Legal Studies senior, Sylvia Mayfield. In November 2012, Mayfield attended the National Black Pre-Law Conference in Houston where she met Mitchell and convinced her to hold the symposium at Paul Quinn. "I came back more determined and more focused," said Mayfield of her experience. "I just tried to represent Paul Quinn the most positive way I know how." With graduation in her sights, Mayfield is considering either intellectual property or sports law.
The event will also feature: Michael J. Sorrell, Esq., president of Paul Quinn; Myra McIntosh, Esq., Dallas County assistant district attorney and associate professor of Legal Studies at Paul Quinn; Monique Broadnax, Esq., government attorney and Legal Studies adjunct professor at PQC; Kendrea Tannis, Esq., dean of the Work Program at Paul Quinn; and Karyn Thomas, Esq., attorney at Harrison & Thomas, LLP and general counsel for Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. Mayfield will also provide insight to what she has learned as a student.
