Message from president & chairperson Anthony Solana Jr. (go down on homepage):  It is with pride and a heavy heart that I present you with these guides. Pride because over the past few years the law school application guide has become an invaluable resource for applicants of color. And a heavy heart because it is the product of desperation.

Since the passage and implementation of Proposition 209 in California, the number of students of color being admitted to institutions of higher learning has plummeted. Nowhere is this more keenly evidenced than in California’s public law schools.

With this in mind, in 2000, I embarked on a journey to create a comprehensive guide, from a non-majority perspective, that would empower students by informing them about the law school admissions process. Later, several law students asked me to write a guide to the bar examination. I invite you to use these guides and urge you to inform others about their availability on this website.

Finally, I would like to thank you for taking this bold step in your life. Although some may deny the beauty and significance of your accomplishments, those of us dedicated to creating a rich, meaningful, and just society refuse to do the same.
