Roadmap to Enrolling Diverse Law School Classes

NEW! Roadmap to Enrolling Diverse Law School Classes - Volume 4: Contextualizing Admission Factors

Law schools want to admit and enroll students who are likely to be successful. The most common conception of a successful student is one who does well (or at least adequately) academically, passes the bar exam the first time, and secures full-time, professional employment shortly after graduation, if not before.
