Diversity in the legal profession is an ongoing issue. Together, Black people and Latinos make up nearly 45% of California population, yet only comprise about 7% of the state bar. The Diversity Legal Pipeline (DLP) seeks to increase diversity in the law by providing law-school bound undergraduates of color with the information, experience and advising necessary to be successful in the law school application process.
The DLP is an intensive, week long pre-law bootcamp that introduces students to the law school application process and puts them face to face with law students, lawyers, and judges who affirm that a legal education is within their reach. During one week the students will participate in a mock constitutional law class, take an actual LSAT, read real court cases, and have plenty of time to meet and network with other students and legal professionals. After the bootcamp, students are offered supplemental support to assist them on their path to law school. Apply by March 31, 2020 at tinyurl.com/DLP2020App
