Dr. Kevin Cokley, Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan, will join us for our next Unity Series event to discuss his work on imposter syndrome in law school and the legal profession. A key component of Dr. Cokley's research is understanding the impostor phenomenon and its relationship to mental health and academic outcomes among minoritized students. Dr. Cokley will present on his imposter phenomenon research, including his recent paper, “Lawyering While Black: Perceived Stress as a Mediator of Impostor Feelings, Race-Related Stress and Mental Health Among Black Attorneys.”

This event is sponsored by the law firm of Dinsmore & Shohl. Attorneys from the firm will be present during and after the event to meet and network with students. All are welcome and encouraged to attend. Register HERE.

Student org sponsors for this event include the Black Law Students Association, First Gen, Women's Legal Forum, LGBT Law Forum, the Middle Eastern Law Students Association, the Hispanic Law Students Association, and the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association.
