We use law to attract junior high school students to academic programs that inspire and motivate them to strive for academic success. From the 8th-12th grades, students work after school, on weekends, and during summers to build the skills and confidence they need to achieve their goals. Once in college, students who wish to pursue law school are eligible to participate in our College to Law School Pipeline Diversity Program.
Number of Students Served:
Foundations, Corporations, Law Firms
