AccessLex Diversity Pipeline Program

New Mexico Immigration Corps. Leadership Development Pipeline

This program includes a highly structured mentorship component that specifically includes some of the supports to which under-represented law students tend to have less access. Paralegal fellows who desire to apply to law school will enter into a contract with NMILC outlining the program curriculum and requirements. Since minority students often have limited access to LSAT prep courses, each fellow will receive a stipend to enroll in a course. All fellows will be give one hour of work time per day to work on the development of their law school application, including studying for the LSAT. Moreover, fellows attend monthly cohort meetings to receive personal mentorship and peer support, and they undergo a 12-week series of targeted trainings to develop their law school applications and to develop technical skills like legal writing and analysis. Fellows receive training from a staff attorney mentor, who coaches and provides insight on legal writing and analytical skills, as well as from the Program Director on the personal and professional skills necessary for success in law school.
