Diversity Programs

Our country should be reflected in our law schools.

Our goal is for graduating law school classes to reflect the diversity of the nation.

How effective are diversity “pipeline” programs? What techniques best support prospective law students from underrepresented backgrounds? What impact do admission and scholarship policies have on diversity trends? We seek answers to the myriad questions around legal education diversity.
