Join Street Law and our national diversity pipeline partners for our annual Best Practices workshop.

Together, we'll work to generate program ideas, share and celebrate successes, and identify challenges and solutions.

 

More than 40 companies, seven ACC Chapters, and ten law firms are currently participating in Street Law's Diversity Pipeline Programs, which are co-sponsored by the Association of Corporate Counsel and NALP. Legal professionals at firms across the country are delivering innovative and exciting programs to more than 3,500 students each year. 

This workshop will provide an opportunity for these professionals to meet each other, network and collaborate about ways to conduct high quality programs.  The workshop will feature:

  • feedback from partner teachers
  • strategies for developing successful follow up activities for students
  • brainstorming solutions to common roadblocks
