We will provide an overview of legal education diversity pipeline programs and highlight their importance in fostering the enrollment of law students from underrepresented backgrounds. We’ll also discuss LexScholars by AccessLex®, our diversity pipeline and research program premised on learning more about effective methods for increasing law school diversity. Preliminary findings from the first year of LexScholars will be shared, and the important role program evaluation — in LexScholars and in pipeline programming overall — plays will be emphasized.
Join our panel of pre-law advisors for a discussion on the changes, challenges and celebrations from the past year and a reflection on the changing landscape of pre-law advising.
At AccessLex, our mission is to improve access, increase affordability and enhance the value of legal education. One of the ways we do that is through our research initiatives. Join us as we review our recent publication, Analyzing Pathways to the J.D., and discuss other upcoming research projects. And because we strive to produce resources, tools, and data that support your efforts, we will also facilitate a dialogue about the types of data and research that is of particular interest to you and the pre-law community.
AccessLex is excited to launch our new student success portal this summer. Join us for an update on this new initiative and an overview of why and how your students will benefit from this new hub.
