A Strong Pipeline to the Legal Profession

Street Law’s Legal Diversity Pipeline Program, designed to introduce high school students to the law and to legal careers, is entering its 16th year!

More than 50 companies and firms currently participate, engaging more than 1,900 legal community volunteers and serving over 5,000 high school students per year. We are happy to announce the following new partners for the fall semester of the 2018-19 school year:

  • New York office of Epstein Becker Green
  • Exelon and the Washington office of Venable LLP
  • Washington office of Dentons

Long-time corporate participant, Verizon, will expand to two additional sites this semester—one in Westchester County, NY, and another in Silver Spring, MD.

Together these five new sites will impact approximately 200 students.

Three other companies are finalizing their plans to launch new programs in the spring semester. In addition, a federal government program has added a new site following three years of success at its initial site.

If you are interested in learning how your firm or company can participate, contact Joy Dingle, Director of Legal Diversity Pipeline Programs.
