In general, the Pipeline Diversity Directory contains information on programs that target or primarily serve racially/ethnically diverse students. These programs fit into two broad categories:
Programs conducted by any type of legal organization, such as a bar association, law school, law firm, corporate counsel, or any other law-related entity.
Programs that encourage students to consider a legal career or help them prepare for one-no mater what type of organization conducts the program. A community agency that conducts a moot court program fits into this category.
It generally takes less than 15 minutes to complete the form.
