Brian Wang, one of the event's organizers, tells me, "I wish that I had this kind of opportunity when I was a college student thinking about applying to law school, especially because it is FREE. Even if our attendees don't end up pursuing a legal career, it will be truly inspirational and help them understand the importance of making a greater impact with their lives." Sounds good to me.
